JARVIS HALL GALLERY is pleased to kick off our fall season with a solo exhibition by Jeff Nachtigall. We hope you will join us on Friday, September 14th between 5-8 PM for the opening reception.

This exhibition will feature a broad variety of Nachtigall's studio practice, giving a greater understanding of his travels across Canada and the United States over the past few years. His pragmatic journey blurs the lines that distinguish myth and legend from a life lived and experienced. Jeff's work is draw from a variety of traditions from pop culture to post-painterly abstraction, along with digital references that reflect his formative years in the studio.

«I’m currently riffing on post-painterly abstraction and hard edge painting… it’s a mash-up that fuses low brow and punk rock sensibilities with the formal aspects of painting and practice. Equal parts Atari and Art History, these Pop art, low-res, 8-bit explorations of colour and composition reference Frank Stella, Ellsworth Kelly, Kenneth Noland, Guido Molinari and other seminal painters of the genre.» — Jeff Nachtigall

Jeff Nachtigall was born in Yorkton, Saskatchewan but now hails from Montreal, Quebec. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Regina and further continued his studies at the Illinois State University. Nachtigall's work is included in numerous permanent collections including the Saskatchewan Arts Board, Nordstrom Corporate Art Collection, Mackenzie Art Gallery, Alberta Foundation for the Arts as well as many private and corporate collections across North America.
