These small canvas works by artist Jeremy Brightbill show a pattern of experimentation with several techniques (sometimes one per piece, sometimes a couple together, and on occasion, several at once), inter-playing with and pulling against each other in what should be a counter-intuitive result. The intent here is to approach and embrace any kind of harmony to counteract the constant chaos and despair of this world. We do what we can and must.
The artist revels in the unknowable and unreachable, often ruining a piece and then figuring out how to un-ruin it. There is a joy and playfulness to these things, underpinning a darker uncertainty and apprehension of what is yet to come.
It is the artist’s hope that the viewer feels something evocative (or anything at all) in this series, and that some kind of connection was made, fleeting or not.
Jeremy Brightbill currently resides and works in Louisville, KY.
I'm probably more of a lukewarm mess these days
