Jack Reilly is known for his complex paintings on shaped canvas structures. His artistic career began in Los Angeles during the late 1970s. He is recognized as an original member of the Abstract Illusionism movement, and as one of the foremost artists working with shaped canvas today. Although Reilly is primarily known as an abstract painter, his artistic facility and mixed-genre style depict an artist capable of eluding classification, working in both abstraction and representational painting. His work is exhibited in galleries and museums internationally and included in numerous public and private collections. Major public art commissions include a forty-foot painting, executed in enamel on steel, for San Diego County, and an eighteen foot shaped-canvas painting commissioned by American Airlines. He is a recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) grant.
