On Saturday, January 6th, Wally Workman Gallery will open their first show with Barcelona based artist Juan Luis Jardí. A mix of magic realism with certain influences of Pop Art and surrealism, Jardí’s figures and themes illustrate the contrast is our lives and the doubts we are faced with as humans. He strives for his work to provoke feelings: nostalgia, melancholy, loneliness and a sense of uneasiness as well as feelings of euphoria and calm. Jardí’s paintings offer a vintage perspective much like a trip into the past.
January 6 from 6-8pm
