This Friday, October 21st, Stolen & Escaped Gallery is pleased to present Autogenus Automatus:
a new solo exhibition of paintings by Shilo Jackson. The paintings are done in a tromp l’oeil style, which translates to “trick the eye”. It’s an age-old technique used to create optical illusions with highly realistic depictions of scenes and objects.

“What do Salvador Dali, Alice in Wonderland, the Mona Lisa, and fortunes from cookies have in common? For one thing, they are among the ephemera collected by Shilo Jackson to be used in various combinations someday in a painting.
At a glance one might think these bits and pieces of collected material are collaged to a cork or fabric background. That’s the trick. Actually, they are carefully and highly realistically painted. Even the cork is an illusion, painstakingly painted to make you believe you could feel the rough texture if you touched it.“
The show will run through Saturday November 12th. Don’t miss it!
