Although Jack Reilly is best known for his abstract paintings, he also works across the boundaries that combine abstraction, representational, and mixed media/mixed genre painting.
Below you will find samples of work from various periods ranging from the late 1980s to 2021. These pieces are executed on complex shaped canvases which integrate figurative imagery with various modes of abstraction and mixed media. Reilly's multi-faceted approach address numerous issues, combining modernist methods with classicism and historical/social narrative. Recent works involve the juxtaposition of Reilly's signature (abstract) brushwork with flawless renditions of old master paintings. Recognized by art critics as "quintessentially postmodern," Reilly explores this combination with his unique approach to addressing conceptual and visual aspects of contemporary painting.
