The latest work from oil painter Jeremy Mann is a collaboration with clothing designer/set designer Christina Molcillo. Mann says his work has the quality of “something dreamlike and lost, or a thing once wonderful and now forgotten,” and with his new show, “Theater of Light,” this thread evolves. The show, staged at Maxwell Alexander Gallery, opens July 15.
San Francisco based artist Jeremy Mann captures the exciting air of his hometown in his dynamic oil landscapes. His “Cityscapes” series portrays the city from bustling, bird’s-eye views to its more mundane and quiet street corners at night, all flickering with glitchy dabs of paint that makes his art appear digital, though it is a description he rejects. It’s a common misconception that perhaps stems from his process, where he references “jumbled up” digital manipulations of his own photographs.
