John Bailly

Bloody Noses and Cracked Crowns

February 14- March 7, 2009

David Castillo Gallery announces John Bailly's Bloody Noses and Cracked Crowns in the Project Room. Bailly's oil paintings and works on paper accumulate physical manifestations of states of mind. Often brooding and tumultuous, Bailly's work seems to suggest the struggle for communication, fluidity of identity, and human empathy through a dense language of bridges, cityscapes, ancient geography, and self-annihilation. Ultimately, Bailly uses abstraction and Dadaist technique to empower the viewer to construct meaning in a world where objects and events possess no true nature.

John Bailly was born in Slough, Buckinghamshire, UK, and raised in Paris, Aix-les-Bains, Long Island, Lyon, and Miami. He received his MFA in painting and printmaking from Yale University in 1993, and is a Fellow of The Honors College at Florida International University. His work has been exhibited at University of Maine Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville, Texas State University, and other institutions throughout the US. In 2006 Bailly was awarded the South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship for Visual and Media Artists, and a State of Florida Individual Artist Grant.
