“This painting was made during my stay at the CCA Artist Residency Program. I was thinking a lot about patterns and disasters. The image of an earthquake reoccurs throughout several other paintings. I like the idea of a crude, comic, yet painterly disaster interrupting a relatively rigid pattern. A snake, rendered in a somewhat ham-fisted manner, takes the form of a passageway or a gate. It is menacing in scale but also inviting in a crude way. Each element of the painting floats in its own space, forced to interact with its surroundings.” – Andrew Jilka
 

Andrew Jilka’s work is about looking for comfort in the unfamiliar while confronting the uneasiness and dread of the routine. It is an attempt to reconcile his “aw-shucks” plainspoken midwestern Wal-Mart culture with the language of capital P Painting. Jilka thinks of his work as a distillation of collective nervousness, anxiety, and optimism. His bright, colourful compositions use the illusion of logic and stability to ask what painting’s relationship can be to the palpable uneasiness of the present. Through his painting practice, he explores the deviations that evolve into tradition, questioning the structures and foundations that inform contemporary life.
