Process, curated by Sofia Guerra 2019

Process, 1993- 2019 by John William Bailly, curated by Sofia Guerra. An interactive site-specific installation with over 12oo works on paper. Visitors can peruse the collection to form their own narrative.

The flat files within the Project Room of the LnS Gallery house over one thousand works on paper created by John William Bailly over the last 25 years. Visitors are taken through the distillation process of the artist. Foundational figure studies, and on-site sketches of European cities fade into abstraction while laying the bones for Decree of DeathVenice Venezuela, and Ghost Dance. The files also house earlier projects of John Bailly’s in one-of-a-kind paintings and monoprints. Collections Pax Romana and Encyclopedia lay among other gems dating back to the early 90’s. The flat files give visitors a comprehensive package of John William Bailly’s style as it has matured into the body of works currently presented in The Roses of Fibonacci.
