Barney Savage Gallery is pleased to present Taking The Measure Of, the second solo exhibition of recent paintings by Jillian Denby, at the gallery. Much has been written about her influential and hard to find early oil paintings centering around the male and female figure. This exhibit presents a selection of ravishingly beautiful recent work in a more modestly scaled and conceptualized idiom, that pivots activities of multiple figures within an exterior day to day world.
Jillian Denby (b.1944) lives and works in upstate New York. Her work has been the subject of many solo exhibitions in New York and nationally. She is the recipient of three awards from the National Endowment for the Arts. Her artworks are in numerous collections including the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden at the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.
