Yes the work of Roxanne Jackson will disturb you. That is what it is meant to do.  After you are disturbed and while your interest has been peaked, if you can get past the raw emotion you will also realize she is a very talented artist capable of working fluidly with several mediums.

Jackson on her work, “I am concerned with confronting the shadows of the unconscious, having a dialogue with the grotesque and, therein, discovering beauty. The tenor of my work is macabre and emotional as I deal with extreme axioms to dramatize the dualities of our nature; these polar aspects reside within us and include vulnerability and strength, the light and the dark, the human and the inhuman.”
