The multi-layered work of Jennifer McClish brings explosive color and character to the gallery walls in her latest solo show, “Expanded Orbit” at Cindy Lisica Gallery. McClish (b. 1982) holds a BFA from Memphis College of Art and MFA from University of Houston and had a standout presence at her 2016 Thesis Show at Blaffer Art Museum. Her subsequent “Floating in Space” solo exhibition at Cindy Lisica Gallery wowed audiences with her distinct style referencing science fiction and space travel. The latest works in "Expanded Orbit" bring a new sense of marvel and engagement with pop culture and the cosmos. The artist uses a variety of materials to build the dynamic textures of her paintings, employing illustration, experimentation, abstraction and architecture. Each canvas is an enticing narrative possibility for the viewer to relish and explore.
McClish has been included in a number of exhibitions in Baltimore, New York, Aspen, Austin, Houston and Memphis. She is currently Adjunct Professor of Art Appreciation and Studio Art at Alvin College, and she is working toward her Doctorate of Education at Abilene in Dallas. Her work has been acquired by the School of Art at University of Houston, as well as several other public and private collections, including the Brinkley Plaza in Memphis and The Lester Marks Collection and LCM Partners, Ltd. McClish has received numerous awards for her artwork and has appeared in Arts + Culture TX, Studio Visit Magazine, Commercial Appeal, Houston Chronicle and Glasstire.
