LUNGLEY Gallery is pleased to present Land Fill by Jack Killick. For his second exhibition Killick will exhibit new paintings and works on paper.

About

Notorious for his huge sculptural projects, painting is an integral part of Killick’s practice; Fuelled by instinct and immediacy his paintings depict a multitude of forms that reoccur throughout his sculptural practice.

Grounded in an anti-monumental tradition Killick is preoccupied with the relationship between objects and the space that surrounds them. His unique sculptural understanding of the world permeates his paintings that exhibit a ‘breaking-down’ of space. Freed from the confines of reality, paper and board become a space for chance as he creates unlikely compositions within the painting, with disregard for the laws of physics tower structures and lumpen masses balance precariously or appear suspended in mid-air.

The resulting works are fluid and incredibly dynamic, making bold use of colour as a means of expression. Heavily stylised; abstract forms are rendered in flat blocks of colour, rejecting a superficial narrative in favour of a synthesis of thought, feeling and poetic imagination.
