The is an 8'x4'X5" work with yellow being the dominant color. Yellow is said to be the color of intellect. It is also the color of Hope, Joy and Spirituality. Yellow being in the family of Reds, is exciting to look at. Yellow enlivens the heart that's painted in a rather pale pink. This symbol that has come to represent the heart is painted upside-down to emphasize the the emotional state of the heart when intellectuals are drawn to matters of the heart. When one stops focusing on academics or intellectual operations, the heart starts to feel deeper emotions and an intellectual being one who often neglect the heart giving more importance to logic and brainpower is now suddenly out of place.

Move to the lower section of the image, here you see two shapes rendered in abstract fashion to imitate bottles. Imagine for a second, these are bottle of wine or one of your favorite spirits. Intellectuals do drink at time, but for the most part, they tend to avoid substances that may alter their abilities to think what they would call straight. Combining intellect with issues concerning the heart while drinking is bound to establish an odyssey filled with emotional excitement and illusions taking into account the effects of spirits on the human. This idea of the three combined is represented by the swirls and twirls and diagonal lines in the composition.

Each of Jackson's paintings are multi-layered and makes use of movement and moodiness that light provides. The multi-layered nature of this painting lends itself to Jackson's weaving and patterning designs. If you are looking at a multi-layered painting regardless of its dimensions, know that Jackson is weaving the human interaction. According to Jackson, humans and their ways are multi-layered, problematic and complex at best. Problems are always multi-layered, and needs to be examined as such.

When looking at a Jackson Shuri, you can't help but think feel tribal fabric! You would be right for doing so. Jackson is often inspired by fabrics, in particular, fabrics from West Africa and as such her designs are relevant to the African Diaspora culminating the Journey of-Matters for the heart 2013 Journey which debuted during Art Basel Miami 2013.
