BSG is pleased to present a solo booth of oil paintings by Jillian Denby. These recent works reveal a visual game of observation that adroitly reveals her conceptual on-site approach to pairing nature and figures within. Working with visual polarities, she pivots chaotic against quiet, action against repose, work-like against serene; things not always complimentary, but together yielding a dynamic balance. Stark differences between the control an artist has over figures or domestic situations juxtaposed with a poetic distance from nature is something to consider in Jillian Denby's work. Through the natural portals depicted in these provocative paintings one can sense the fragile challenges to dominating wild surroundings. Jillian Denby is represented in public and private collections including the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC.
