A Visual Journey


Jack Energy brings a refreshingly embryonic yet profoundly old soul depth to his canvases. A child of the Midwest (USA) he moved to Boston in 1995. Having studied sculpture and drawing in college, he currently works almost exclusively with acrylics, some mixed media, collage and is planning some installations.

Jack Energy rarely uses brushes, opting to use 'found' objects for application and texture. 

Jack Energy Zone looks to broadcast his artwork and poetry/short stories as well as eventually incorporate an interactive section where people from all over the world may collaborate on visual and written projects together. 

Jack Energy is the pen name of Brian Riley, a professional songwriter/producer. He operates the indie label Shave Records (shaverecords.com) and currently fronts the Boston band, Echo Detective. His past bands are SailorSam and Shave Librarian.
