bG Gallery presents an exhibition of the latest body of work by artist Jack Reilly. The gallery hosted an opening art party on March 11, 2023. The solo exhibition will remain on view through April 9, 2023.
Jack begins on a circular structure. This creates a visual container to explore the endless repetition and nature of time and space. The outlying edges of these circular paintings consist of rapidly applied, highly chromatic brushstrokes, compressed within hard-edge boundaries that circle the exterior regions of the canvas.
Jack’s signature brushwork surrounds the circle, it has been compared to the complexities of stained glass and Byzantine mosaics. Within the center of these circular objects, lie a wide-open space. A sort of an abyss where soft fields of color appear to float somewhere behind the circular edges of the canvas. Within these soft fields of color, one can get lost in the ambiguity of space, contemplate its meaning, or meditate upon the object itself.
On view: March 11, 2023 – April 9, 2023
