“This painting plays with the wave patterns as a space to be interacted with. The image of a traveling peddler is taken from a medieval illuminated manuscript. I like the idea of this man wandering through an impossible place, a setting that is hard to understand, then being attacked by a stray dog. I was thinking about ideas of instability, dread, and unexpected interruptions. On a formal level, this painting relies on the slight shifts of scale and perspective to turn a simple pattern into a treacherous place to go for a walk.” – 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.
