Jackie Tileston (MFA Painting Professor) in Solo Exhibit at Pentimenti Gallery, Opening Friday, November 6, 6:00 - 8:30pm

Jackie Tileston, Auspicious Circling of Mad Utopias, 2008

Jackie Tileston, MFA Professor of Painting, will have a solo show titled Mesocosmos opening Friday, November 6 at Pentimenti Gallery. This show will include Jackie's drawings and photographs as well as her paintings. Her paintings incorporate various elements, ranging from photo-collage of cultural landscape motifs (Tibetan landscapes, “El Dorado”, Eastern architectural silhouettes, etc.) to seemingly arbitrary abstract shapes all with a purpose to insinuate a constant flux. The works eventually accumulate information in the center of a massive space to depict a whole image, an unreal landscape that only exists in her work. Her drawings on black paper give a much greater sense of space through the compression of her reduced imagery. Her powerful and colorful photographs will give more insight into the fictional worlds she creates from.

Opening Reception: Friday, November 6, 6:00 - 8:30pm
Exhibition Dates: November 6 - December 18, 2009
