Jeff Bailey Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of paintings by Duncan Hannah.
Duncan Hannah is well known for his paintings of ships, cars and women. Taken together, they evoke a world of adventure, escape and intrigue.
Hannah’s knowledge of vintage cars, ocean liners, films and film stars is as keen as his deft painterly touch. By knowing something so well, he brings us to it, or at least close enough to sense a particular moment or feel of an era.
The title of the exhibition, Distant Marvels, is taken from Jack Kerouac’s short story "Good Blonde", published in Playboy magazine in 1965. He rhapsodizes about myriad sensations of city life, beauty and decay, and impending thrills. It’s a world of endless possibilities. Like Kerouac, Hannah asks us to “Savor everything”.
Duncan Hannah is a 2011 Guggenheim Fellow and has had over sixty solo exhibitions. His work is in the collections of numerous museums, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Minneapolis Institute of Fine Art and the Art Institute of Chicago. He lives and works in New York.
