Focusing on the details of daily life and childhood memories, Mary Jones’ cartoon like figures have an insightful character with a serious edge influenced by the Chicago Imagists. Fanciful at first glance, further study reveals the more serious side of life through bold strokes of paint and subtle touches of collage.

Doug Hatch is best known for his realistic paintings of urban scenes. Working in his studio from photographs, Hatch employs traditional methods of photorealism using strong diagonals, reflected surfaces, and transparent components to elucidate vibrant street scenes. Influenced by Edward Hopper and Richard Estes, Hatch is particularly interested in interpreting daily life. Vibrant, detail oriented and filled with movement, the paintings of Doug Hatch capture a place and time of day, perfectly.
In his second solo exhibition at Tory Folliard Gallery, Ron Isaacs continues his 30+ year career of constructing and painting wood to resemble architectural clothing and other antique objects. Purposely devoid of figures, Isaacs invites the viewer to question what they are actually seeing. In this master’s hands, wood appears to be fabric, and leaves and branches are actually carefully constructed details. Combining trompe l’oeil painting with master wood assembling, Isaacs presents new sculptures that quietly demand a careful look to determine their true nature.
