$ 5,595.00

Chase #16 is featured in Fairfax-based Jeffrey Palladini's Hotel Series. In this thesis, Jeffrey 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. He tells us that in his exploration of this theme, he experienced and considered the implications of both the forced intimacy encountered by guests at a hotel pool as well as the mystery of the subjects painted.

"From one charged moment, the story extends infinitely in all directions. As in memory, all is viewed in snapshots, in glimpses. Complex narratives, transformative events, entire lifetimes, boiled down to these singular points in time," he describes. Whether it's self discovery, a celebration, a sexual encounter, an experience of conflict or joy, the viewer is left with the imperative of interpreting the vast remainder.

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.

Description
"In these paintings are captured, in bright brief flashes, complex emotion and intense intimacy. With minimal information provided, to the viewer is left the imperative of exploring the vast remainder. From a movie still is extrapolated a full film of character, pacing, plot and script. From a paragraph, an entire novel. From a brief encounter, a lifetime of histories and potentialities. From a single windowpane spreads a wide, complicated landscape. From one charged moment, the story extends infinitely in all directions. As in memory, all is viewed in snapshots, in glimpses. Complex narratives, transformative events, entire lifetimes, boiled down to these singular points in time." ~ Jeffrey Palladini
