Jack Reilly is known for his geometric, shaped-canvas paintings, signature brushwork, and seductive illusionism. He is recognized as an origional member of the Abstract illusionism movement, and one of the foremost American painters working in shaped canvas today.
His artistic career began in Los Angeles during the late 1970s. Although Reilly is primarily known as an abstract painter, his artistic facility and diverse styles depict an artist capable of avoiding classification, working in both abstraction and representational painting. His work is exhibited in galleries and museums internationally and included in numerous public and private collections. Major public art commissions include a forty-foot painting, executed in enamel on steel, for San Diego County, and an eighteen foot shaped-canvas painting commissioned by American Airlines. He is a recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) grant.
