About

Bill Jacklin: Paintings from 1986 to 2016 spans thirty years of the artist’s work painted in locations from New York and London, to the Italian city of Florence.

The exhibition is comprised of 21 paintings, all of which explore space and light, people and places ranging from the darker and more precisely rendered Meatpackers NYC II (1986) to the dream-like Embrace: Grand Central III (2016). One of the constants in Jacklin’s long career has been his frequent play with dualities: in addition to light and shadow, there is order and chaos, energy stored versus energy being released, and most important of all, representation and abstraction. As writer Eric Bryant observes in the exhibition catalogue, “Viewers who search out a wider array of Jacklin’s work, or simply look more closely at these paintings will soon see the lineup of distinct styles dissolve into an intertwined network of borrowed and reworked elements.”
