Our next stop, before heading downtown for lunch and the last Figure al Fresco, was Hirschl & Adler to see the work of an artist with which we were unfamiliar. The exhibition “Modernism Without Apologies” showing the work of Everett Gee Jackson surprised and delighted us and neither one of us could leave without copying details of this painting.

From the gallery’s press release:

“…Jackson published a short treatise on modern art…Jackson noted, ‘Form is the material of modernists…It is the contention of the modernist that, by the arrangement of forms, colors and lines considered abstractly, one may possibly express objectively his emotional reactions to experiences with nature.'”…
“Jackson was a conduit; he imported the Mexican avant-garde and applied it to homegrown subjects from East Texas to Southern California.”

Again, I did the drawing while in the gallery, directly in front of the artwork, and started painting but there was no time. I snapped a pic and referred to that photo to complete the painting later on at home.
