Press Release

NEW YORK, NY (2014) – Jack Geary is pleased to announce the opening of Richard Jacobs: Soul Delay featuring Jacobs’ recent paintings. The show will be on view September 12 – October 11, 2014 at Jack Geary on 185 Varick Street.

 

Richard Jacobs’ first solo show in nearly twenty years aims to physicalize his long-standing interest in introspection and the “conscious artifice”. In the words of Carl Belz, Richard’s work “demonstrates convincingly how such an art effectively spans any real or imaginary divide between the present and the past, while at the same time extending vital traditions of that past unequivocally into the here and now...Jacobs’ paintings ask to be experienced slowly, allowing each shape and space and color and mark to be absorbed with the same patience that informed the creation and placement of that pictorial unit.”

 

Jack Geary is exceptionally pleased to be showing Richard’s recent work, created with his adventurous concept of time, texture, scale, and color through the lens of abstract forms. The paintings provide a sustained tension between organic and angular forms at the same time that they capture movement and a sense of the absolute present.
