Jacob Ouillette's paintings are like pinwheels or solid bricks of colour. Beach umbrellas, quilt patterns, colour swatches - all the individual elements work together like cogs to create relationships that form the whole. These large scale oils become mesmerizing, and the site-specific ones are spectacular. Verve, movement and asymmetry make Ouillette's paintings lively without being overwhelming.
