Jaclyn Conley

the current exhibition over at Buy Some Damn Art features work by canadian artist Jaclyn Conley. whenever i’m faced with the “what would you do if you had a million dollars?” question i always fantasise about investing in a lot of great art. but, you and i can do that right now – that’s where Buy Some Damn Art comes in. i love these pieces by Jaclyn, i think they would be a fine addition to my imaginary collection. you can read an interview with here.

These paintings are the result of broad paring down in my studio and practice. I’ve challenged myself to present only what it essential in terms of material, image, rendering and scale. Paintings are worked and reworked with a great deal of erasure and reductive building. As I’m painting I’m distilling an image down to a very small moment. This way of working is in some ways more responsive, slow and less predetermined than I’ve done in the past.

    These are wonderful! It would be so cool to see in process shots. (I’m really intrigued by her statement of reductive building)

    And I love that you have any imaginary art collection ;)
