Jack Featherly @ Upfor Gallery, Aug 6 – 30

6 August 2014

Upfor Gallery is hosting artist Jack Featherly‘s latest solo exhibition, titled Unpattern, at their Portland space from August 7 – 30.

Beginning in traditions of gestural abstraction, Featherly’s latest collection of oil and enamel paintings take cues on colour, form and meaning from a host of diverse sources, including ASCII computer codes, TV graphics, ukiyo-e, and “Doonesbury”.

Moving further away from the clip-art aesthetic Featherly called upon in recent decades, Unpattern maintains its conceptual virtual origins, swathing them in brushy abstraction with pieces like ‘Unpattern5’, below. 

See the Upfor Gallery exhibition page for details. **
