Artist Jeffrey Palladini tackles the thesis of the influence on our lives of things just outside our control. His Fundamental Forces is a reflection series that looks at what remains as time moves forward, but part of us doesn't change. These paintings are a meditation on our personal stimuli—memories, inspiration, longing, lust—even our dreams, which are involuntary and untethered.
Jeffrey offers a glimpse, an intense suggestion of these simplified details and goes one step further, offering a perspective on very real issues in society today. Collective Unconscious illustrates his unique vocabulary of dramatic figurative imagery, with a sense of mystery that leaves much up to the viewer to assemble.
"Our identity is made up entirely of bits of past, present, and future, and is never static." ~ Jeffrey Palladini
The artist paints primarily on wood panels, most of which he builds himself in order that his purposeful brushstrokes can best be viewed. Jeffrey is also a master at outline and does not use any masking to draw his figures, environments or words.
