About

A turn towards figurative work by artist Jack Reilly from his Eros, Love and Myth series, depicting love in a time of hate. The work is stretched canvas over sculpted stretcher bars, oil, acrylic polymers, grout, gold leaf, silver leaf on shaped canvas. Jack Reilly is known for blurring the lines between sculpture and painting, coming to prominence in the 1970s. In 1979, the Molly Barnes Gallery on La Cienega presented a solo exhibition of Reilly’s abstract paintings. These new shaped canvases were met with critical acclaim by the Los Angeles Times, Artweek, and Arts Magazine. That same year, Reilly received a National Endowment for the Arts Grant. Reilly’s paintings were included in the collections of such notables as Fred and Marcia Weisman, Steve Martin, and Daniel Melnick. The series is a cross-pollination of imagery, materials, and methods that simultaneously explore the juxtaposition of narrative subject matter and formal abstraction. The figurative portion of each piece, rendered in a traditional classical modality, is based upon historical and mythological ideas that depict aspects of beauty and love in their numerous manifestations. The abstract sections consist of a mixed media, process-based approach, that when juxtaposed alongside the figurative panels, ultimately take on the role of a sort of frame for the latter. One of the artist’s goals for this body of work was to reappraise and comment on the evolving intersection of historical and contemporary painting.
