> DESCRIPTION

Jesse McCloskey’s Paintings are certainly representational, yet he considers himself an abstract artist. McCloskey begins each work by making several large, colorful, abstract paintings, then cutting them into hundreds of exacting sculptural shapes. These small pieces of painted paper are painstakingly applied to a stretched canvas layer by layer, building up dimension, color, design and impact. The artist creates form, loosening and tightening it over and over until it feels right; the final work is twenty to thirty layers thick: arresting, haunting and mysterious.
