Jared Small returns to David Lusk Gallery Nashville for a year-end solo exhibition. “In Dimension” follows “Dimension” that began 2018 at DLG Memphis. His paintings on panel and plexi-glass feature flowers floating in ethereal space and Southern homes existing in ambiguity.
Small’s ability to accurately detail exactly what he sees is one of his greatest talents. He describes his practice as, “…trying to accomplish a dream-like state. I’m imagining other people’s memories—fading, but still there.”
The flowers drip and meld on the glass surface, drawing the viewer back to a crystallized moment in time.
Essentially self-taught, Small lives and works in Memphis. He’s participated in numerous exhibitions across the southeast, and in February of 2019 the Huntsville Museum of Art in Huntsville, Alabama, opens a large solo-exhibition of his work from the past ten years. Several public collections boast his work, including the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, and the Nashville Music City Center that owns the monumental “True Blues” allegorical painting.
