Northern California artist Jeffrey Palladini’s compelling figurative paintings explore human emotion, relationships, and sensuality through deceptively simple imagery:

“By keeping his figures stark and his backgrounds free of distraction, Palladini allows us a great deal of latitude in interpreting the apparent goings-on – actually, in formulating our own narratives…our curiousity, not sufficiently fulfilled, keeps us riveted, as if something else might happen in each painting,” writes Peter Frank, curator at the Riverside Museum in Los Angeles and prominent art critic.

Palladini’s lush paint application and brushwork, dramatic composition, and linear and pattern elements promote an emotional, psychosexual intensity, while the structure of the wood panels ground each piece, giving a feeling of permanence and solidity.

Jeffrey Palladini has shown extensively in juried, group, and solo exhibitions around the United States for the last 17 years, and was featured in the Bill Lowe Gallery’s March 2007 exhibition held in Atlanta. His work is included in numerous private and public permanent collections.
