Join us in welcoming our new artist, Jesse Blake Hay, into The Gallery with the debut of his works, “Reverie Collection”.
“My work depicts the dreamscape within me. I blend common shapes and geometric themes with the stuff of my subconscious, using bold colors and texture. My hope is that my works are subjective enough to stir up sensibilities from your own subconscious as well. Ultimately, I want every viewer to find a personal meaning in the menagerie of gouache, charcoal, oil pastel, chalk, and acrylic on canvas.”
It’s been a full circle odyssey for Jesse. After growing up in Eau Claire, he left in 2009 for what would become a 14 year lap around the US. Now, after spending time in Portland (OR), NYC, Seattle, Eureka (CA), and Austin (TX), he is back in his hometown with art in hand. His modern abstract approach incorporates a variety of mixed media (oil pastel, gouache, acrylic, chalk, charcoal), predominantly done on canvas. He currently lives and does his work on Grand Ave.
