MUST SEE

Scott White Contemporary Art will welcome artist James Rielly with an opening show and artist reception on Jan. 12 at the gallery from 6 to 8 p.m.

Rielly, a member of a prominent group of postmodernist artists dubbed the “Young British Artists” influenced by Dada and Surrealism, was the winner of the prestigious John Moores Contemporary Painting Prize in 1995. He is known for his absurd portraits of unknown people, often displaying a pale, muted palette that stands at odds with his dark, often morbid themes of youth, aging, alienation and abnormality. His new show in La Jolla, "When I was young I would sit in the bath and ideas would come to me, now I am old I sit in the bath,” is a solo collection of large- and small-scale acrylic on canvas paintings and an animated video installation. The show will run through Feb. 23 at the gallery, located at 7655 Girard Ave., Suite 101. For more information, visit www.scottwhiteart.com or call (858) 255-8574.
