Jack Whitten has been painting for over 50s from his early work influenced by De Kooning in the 60s to recent work influenced by contemporary technology such as e-stamps and smartphones. His current work involves pieces cast acrylic paint which are collaged onto canvas using a mosaic-like method.

A print I made for Pallas Projects is included in the show The Future is Self-Organised — Artist-Run Spaces curated by Pallas Projects at Limerick City Gallery of Art.
The exhibition continues until the 15th of January so if you are in Limerick call in and have a look. It’s above the TV on the left.
The print (which is pictured below) is an edition of 50 and available to purchase from Pallas Projects for just €50 which will go towards funding future shows at the gallery.
