‘Beasts Will Be Still There’ By Jacob Heustis

Gallerist/artist John Brooks likes to display thought-provoking artists in his gallery. The work of Jacob Heustis certainly qualifies. In his first solo exhibition in five years, Heustis is showing his visual conversations about class, desire and vanity. “This new body of work finds Heustis challenging his natural minimalist inclinations,” said Brooks. “Formidable beasts, familiar icons and mythological and symbolic figures loom in imaginary spaces just as they haunt our culture’s unconscious collective psyche.” —Jo Anne Triplett
