THE ROYAL ROAD: an exhibition of paintings by Jill Pabich
September 2-30, Winfisky Gallery
Jill Pabich is the featured artist in the opening exhibition of the 2015-16 academic year. The Salem resident employs photo-realist painting techniques to create her work, drawing in particular on imagery from her dreams. According to the artist, "My dreams are very vivid. They accompany me throughout my every day; sometimes as a whisper, sometimes as an endless loop of dreams that I remember, often decades old."
The scale and perspective of Pabich's pieces heightens the surreal qualities of the paintings and the source material of her dreams. These are often juxtaposed against portraiture of her children or a strong sense of place. Her method of applying layers of colors on a monochromatic underpainting creates luminous images.
Pabich will be on campus on September 16 for a gallery talk at 12 pm and a reception at 2 pm in the Winfisky Gallery.
The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 10 am to 2 pm or by appointment: 978.542.7890
