“In this painting, chunky impasto paint forms waves to create a psychedelic framework.  The image of an old fish man in a pillory could be funny, if it were not so pathetic. I am not really concerned with how the guy got there. It is more about acceptance; accepting that there is very little one can do. The shifts in perspective and the mirrored patterns insinuate movement, or change, or growth. But the pillory is the exact opposite. All flaws, shame and guilt are on full display to be dwelled on.” – 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.
