About Jackie Tileson’s Work

I could fall into one of Jackie Tileson’s paintings and wander around for hours or days.  She creates a deep ethereal space filled with wonderful surprises of different types of imagery: explosions of paint, drips, amorphous shapes, graffiti, circles, loops, and fractal imagery — different vocabularies of expression skillfully combined in one large space.

I just discovered she’d had a show in Dallas this past summer.  An 8 hour round-trip and I could have seen her work in person!

Artist Statement (excerpt)

“I am interested in creating paintings that bring together a wide multiplicity of sources into a coherent – and sometimes discordant – whole, an attempt at a “unified field theory” of painting. My paintings feed off of the history of abstraction, physics, traditional eastern imagery, Chinese landscape motifs, digital imaging, and other sources. There is a constant flux between atmospheric and graphic, abstract and figurative, quiet and chaotic forces. A medley of sources is orchestrated to create or reconstruct a world within the painting in which a new kind of sense is made – one in which the beautiful, absurd, sacred, and mundane can coexist.”

The concern of the artist is with the discrepancy between physical fact and psychic effect.

  • This is a great landscape, with remarkable expanse of internal rhythms in all directions. One certainly understands why the spot is sacred and gets the vibes of “global synchronized meditation”…
