A solo exhibition by NYC painter Julian Jackson.
American Abstract Artists presents ABSTRACTION (Abstraction to the Power of Infinity), curated by Janet Kurnatowski. ABSTRACTION celebrates the perseverance of non-figurative and non-objective art, including the practitioners, pioneers and those currently working in the traditions of abstraction. This exhibition shows the recent work of 76 members of the American Abstract Artists (AAA), along with four guest exhibitors.
For Julian Jackson’s first solo exhibition at Karan Ruhlen Gallery the central theme of his work is inspired by the phenomena of light, color, and a sense of layered space. The elusive nature of light and the fundamental opposition of vertical and horizontal axis have been the subject of his paintings for more than a decade.
