Jared Betts: Abstract Painting

In Jared's Words:

Somewhere between dreams and reality, my thoughts are brought to life as I create surreal worlds.

With my structured yet tumultuous style of painting, I seek to give voice to unspoken emotion and the endless static noise of the mind trough the long term evolution of compositional arrangement. Applying an intuitive approach allows me to investigate a world created by the repetition of mark making and the rich layering of vibrant paint.  Through abstraction, I explore the metaphysical by using bright colours, optical illusions and bold gestures to grasp attention from the viewer like a candy shop to a child.

The show ran from January 2 until February 14 with an Artist Reception on January 10 from 6 - 8 pm.
