Jacob Collins: Still Lifes
June 7th - July 6th 2007
Hirschl & Adler Modern is pleased to announce the opening of Jacob Collins: Still Lifes on June 7, 2007. This, the artist’s third solo exhibition with the gallery, will feature over twenty remarkable new still lifes in oil, ranging in size from 6 x 8 inches to 18 x 20 inches. In these new paintings, Collins continues to demonstrate his mastery of and unique perspective on the still life genre. While he remains committed to the classical ideals of beauty, harmony and superior technical draftsmanship that have guided him in the past, he also offers a playful and contemporary twist on traditional still life pictures. Rather than presenting us with staid arrangements of inaccessible objects, he invites us in and allows us a glimpse into the personal and intimate engagement between painter and subject.
