Jack Bishop: Road Trip Playlist
Road Trip Playlist is the artist's first solo show with Mayberry Fine Art. Jack’s paintings have had a recurrent subject matter of driving for some time now, but these recent works have also become autobiographical. His newest body of work is influenced by years of travelling with his wife and dog on the highway back and forth between Halifax NS and Saint John NB. Drawing from memories of his personal experience, and by channeling some favourite music for inspiration, these paintings have become psychological self-portraits, where colour becomes transcendent and space melds into abstraction. While this work has a more personal sentiment than what he has made in the past, the appropriated song lyrics which he titled the works create a pop culture reference that frames the paintings into a conceptual narrative, giving a level of atmosphere to the work and inclusivity to the viewer.
