SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- Mark Wolfe Contemporary Art presents By Extension, an exhibition of new paintings and works on paper by gallery favorite Jacob Tillman in his second solo outing.

In this new body of work, Tillman further develops his idiosyncratic interpretation of time and space, exploring the relationship between exterior spaces, interior planes, and the dimensionality of the objects within. Gravity takes on a subtly mercurial quality, allowing objects to shift, hover, and realign in a way that seems self-considered. Simultaneously, individual claims to the third dimension become lost, with features abstracting into patterns, and visual rhythms emerging from dynamics of texture, surface, substance, air, and light. The works challenge, puzzle, and always compel.

Tillman received his MFA in painting from UCLA in 2010. In addition to shows at Wolfe Contemporary, he has exhibited in Los Angeles, Prague, Salzburg, and Rome, and has completed residencies at J.B. Blunk (Inverness, CA) and Galleria Studio Legale (Rome).

Showing in the Gallery Ell are paintings by Sarah Thibault, a recent MFA graduate from the California College of the Arts. Thibault’s paintings explore the artifice of antique shop interiors, and breathe life into the sculptures, vases, and chandeliers within. Each painted object is imbued with a spectral quality through texture, color and light. Through her work, Thibault combines her interests in the spectacle of commerce and ideas surrounding the aesthetics of power and indulges in the hedonism of painting.
