Last year Jackie Gallagher opened her first solo show in San Francisco at the Articulated Gallery entitled Of Melancholy & Monkey Business. The show was amazing, you can check out the review and images here. Jackie is back in SF and the Articulated for another solo show, this one entitled Creatures of the Night. I headed over for the reception, and this time I even used a worse camera than I did before, sorry about that. Either way, we have some images of the works from the show, and more will be added to the galleries website in the next week or so.
The last show Jackie had at the gallery focused on monkeys, mermaids, water creatures, and all sorts of amazing creepiness. This time around, Jackie held onto her signature style of creepy imagery, and added some candy color and elements to each of the paintings. The smaller works in this show were also painted on layers, so she would create the main painting, add a thick layer of resin, and then add more painted details. Much like the first solo show she had the gallery, this show was very cohesive and was successful in showing that Jackie has a very strong style, and clear path that she is going to take. We just need to make sure we are along for the ride.
If you haven’t done so already, make sure you head over and check out Jackie’s homepage for more work, as well as upcoming news and events. I did take a video of the opening night, which I hope to have finished up in the next week. Until then, take a look at the images below. Paintdead.com – Portfolio of Jackie Gallagher
