First Tuesday Oct 1 with New Work from Jeffrey Palladini
Join us with artist Jeffrey Palladini in person.
Tuesday October 1
Jeffrey paints compelling narratives that dig in to the moment. Cultural, social issues that he observes and reflects on through his art.
In his Hotel Series, the Fairfax artist invites us to experience his fascination with captured moments in time, where the viewer can only imagine what has happened before and after–the world of things outside the frame. The viewer is left the imperative of exploring the vast remainder.
Jeffrey also tackles the thesis of the influence on our lives of things just outside our control in his Fundamental Forces. This series looks at what remains as time moves forward, but part of us doesn't change.
In his brand new work, Thread Series, the random looping and twisting patterns of a dropped length of twine are a seductive metaphor for the way we get from our aims and dreams to the outcomes. But, as Jeffrey reflects, “the more you try to exert control the random creeps in, [and] it turns out that the more you try to represent the random the more control creeps in.”
