Objects Solitary and Terrible by Bill Jehle

January 9, 2018

Art Gallery presents Bill Jehle
January 19 - March 18, 2018
Opening Reception: Saturday February, 3rd, 2018, 5-7PM

The object in view assumes an exalted place:  modern painting is a painting of the object. In it, Nature becomes a fragmented space, made of objects solitary and terrible because the links between them are only potential. Nobody chooses them for a privileged meaning, or a particular use, or some service; nobody imposes a hierarchy on them, nobody reduces them to the mani-festation of a mental behavior, or of an intention, of some evidence of tenderness.

Bill Jehle (b. 1952, El Centro, CA) is the son of architect William Jehle and ceramicist/painter Marguerite. Jehle received his BFA from CalArts in 1974 and currently divides his time between Topanga Canyon and his cabin in Southern Colorado.
