Jaik with Wolf Mask (2016)

We are thrilled to welcome Jaik Faulk back to Nationale for, "I feel alright with azaleas around," his fifth solo exhibition with the gallery. Jaik left Louisiana last Monday to drive his new paintings to Portland. Somewhere around Texas and New Mexico, he somehow took a wrong turn, which led him through the darkest stretch he'd ever driven. For three hours he saw no lights, no towns, no sign of life. It was at that exact time on the radio that the media called the election for Donald J. Trump. With this in mind, I'd like to thank Jaik not only for making the 2500-mile trek but for these haunting and beautiful new southern paintings.
Please join us tomorrow Thursday, November 17 for the reception (6—8 p.m.)
