Exhibitionin Hudson, NY / United States
Jeff Bailey Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Yevgeniya Baras, John Dilg and Matt Phillips.
If Baras’ pieces are what you find on the other side of the mountain in a Dilg painting, Phillips are the quilts you dream under to get there. Soft colors, half-remembered. Dawn under the sheets. Aladdin’s cave. A rowboat. A domino mask. Treasure Island and hide and seek. Mysterious affinity of surface for depth.
Each wields an exacting attention to surface in order to dive deep. Phillips’ silica and geometry could be watered silk, neatly folded. Brittle incisions in Dilg, each line a subtle halo lining a deceptively ordinary tree. Floating pieces of power in Baras, sigils submerged or excavated from earthy impasto.
Radiance, spirit symmetries. A limpid moon in a rocky pool. A curtain blowing at a window and what’s outside, creosote and rain on the hot concrete.
