Join JM Gallery Saturday, December 10 at 12 for an artist talk featuring Jay Bailey where he will discuss his body of work currently on display.

Jay Bailey's paintings and drawings are full of life. Fluid contour lines layered with puddles and washes of color appear, on one level, just as the materials they areā€”charcoal and paint on a white ground. But at the same, the lines, colors, and paper actively coalesce into human figures, as if in real time, creating a dynamic interplay between the materials and the forms they represent. The materials and the figures are each engaging on their own terms. The loose, gestural quality of seemingly uncoordinated stains and lines creates a sense of spontaneity and immediacy. And the emergent figures are all too human; as Jay describes them, they are deconstructed souls with scars, imperfections, tattoos, and memories.
Jay has a BA in Fine Art from the University of Nevada in Reno, he undertook post-baccalaureate studies at the San Francisco Art Institute, and he has an MFA from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He has shown his work in group and solo exhibitions in the United States, Canada, and Australia.
