Diane Calder, VISUAL ART SOURCE - ARTSCENE (Los Angeles).

Linda Jacobson, ARTS MAGAZINE
"Jack Reilly is a handy multimedia conceptualist with something to say... the artist has a clever and distinctive approach."

Maggie Wilson, THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC
"Reilly's paintings reflect upon the mainstream of painting since abstract expressionism of the 1940s."
