Jack Leamy in The Ramp Gallery through November 28

What: MYSTIC SUPERHERO by Jack Leamy

Where: The Ramp Gallery

When: November 17–28, 2011

In the words of the artist, Jack Leamy, “Painting is a vital spiritual experience, a living thing with the potential to be confrontational.  I bring an ethical and moral inquiry to the viewer-­‐participant. A painting is a window in the sense that it opens up to the  ages inspiring a reckoning. To stop and  enter a painting is a transcendent and  transpersonal  experience revitalizing the mind.  It is the nearest thing to primordial religious vitality  possible  -­‐without the religion.”

Jack Leamy was born and raised in a factory town in rural Massachusetts. He earned his BFA from Pratt Institute and his MFA in 2010 from the San Francisco Art Institute where he received the Irene Pijoan Memorial Painting Award. Jack is also the recipient of the prestigious Tournesol Award for 2010/2011. He has exhibited his artwork in Massachusetts, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
