GENESEO — The Lockhart Gallery at SUNY Geneseo will be presenting recent paintings from Jonathan Daly.
According to a press release from SUNY Geneseo, Daly’s style blends the genres of still-life and landscape to provide artistic commentary on people’s relationship with the environment that they inhabit.
“The paintings are careful arrangements of my rural Wyoming County surroundings and the items gleaned from its surface,” said Daly. “The delicate coexistence between our natural roots and the synthetic fabrications of our species are at [the] heart of my imagery. The work examines the disconnect that permeates our relationship with the landscape we inhabit.”
The exhibit will be revealed Feb. 1 after an opening reception at 5 p.m., and will be available until Mar. 8.
The opening reception will also include an appearance by Daly and an opportunity to discuss the exhibit with him.
“Through my intimate connection with the land, I strive to elevate my subject matter from a personal realm to the universal,” says Daly, regarding the implications of his work.
The Lockhart Gallery is located at 26 Main Street, inside the McClellan House.
