Patrick Painter 2013
Acrylic on canvas with painted matchstick
20 x 16 inches (51 x 41 cm)
Jamian Juliano-Villani is one of the leading artists in the currently flourishing figurative painting movement, creating works that burst with narrative force, balancing obvious illustrative visuals with subtle, complex, and conceptual ideas.
One of her quieter works, Patrick Painter is typical of Juliano-Villani’s comic and cartoon aesthetic, taking the classic still life and interpreting it into her manic universe. This unique work combines the ready-made matchstick with her vividly painted scene. Having just opened a solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, as well as inclusion in a group show at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, the artist’s works are in extraordinary demand. She will open a solo show at JTT (NY) this March.
