Stay tuned for details about a forthcoming show this May!
Check out my Instagram feed (@jn33ly), where I’m circulating new digital work and revisiting details of older paintings and never-before-seen sketches.
Series: Esoteric Communication
I’m producing a series of abstract digital images that all make their debut on Facebook. The purpose of this project is both to give expression to ideas in an open visual language at a time when the written word struggles with the essential irrationality of public discourse and to change the experience of Facebook for myself and all those who interact with me. By offering an alternative to the UI (including its dull and limited color palette, the fixed proportions of its constituent elements, and its relentless pursuit of interactions to monetize) and challenging the conventions of how and what one shares on the platform, I question the purpose and pace of our lives within this monolithic environment and aspire to build a more humane way to share the virtual space.

“Making Music” at Figureworks
September 9 – October 30, 2016
I have a piece (sold!) in a great group show at Figureworks in Williamsburg. My contribution is a new painting called “fan art (tbp)”—a take on the art often found in or sold near jazz clubs. This small figurative piece (6″x4.5”) features artist friends from The Bad Plus sketched roughly in paint with great affection.
