JCC Art Gallery
Whether through a refined drawn line or an abstract brush stroke of color, art conveys expressions and perceptions of who, or what, a person or thing is. This exhibit pursues a visual representation around the concept of identity – existing in a space where self expression merges with a personal recording of the human condition.

Meet the Artists…
“Under the current circumstances it seems frivolous and even disingenuous to be writing about my art in an explanatory way. These statements are, as I understand them, a way for the artist to give the viewer guidance on how to view their work. Intent seems to play a big part in most of the statements I read. The artist using the written word to explain to the viewer how to look at art based on his personal process of creating seems a bit dishonest. So I’m gonna proceed with this statement in the most honest and direct way possible.
I made this art while recovering from a back injury that required a significant amount of hardware to surgically repair. Every aspect of the art created was influenced by it. The scale, materials, and subject matter were all a direct result of the experience. This work is the result of me living through a specific set of circumstances and documenting the process.
Now, do I expect the viewer to drag that knowledge into their experience? No. I absolutely do not. I would prefer that the work is seen as it is. These are small drawings and paintings hanging in a public space. They can be enjoyed (or disliked) for any individual element included or as a whole. I hereby grant all responsibility of intent and meaning to the viewer. Enjoy.”
“My painting has become so much more than I ever could have hoped for, but in the end it is still just me, paint, and a canvas.”
“I am a graphic designer and painter, but with careful thought they go hand in hand. My art is painted with intent, delivering pieces that I hope give the viewer the comfort of structure, along with the emotional release of abstraction. The specific placement of color in a variety of my pieces creates a ‘graphic-like’ feel. When the colors are carefully painted together we can be reminded of a pixelated image on a computer screen.”
“My print work deals with mass production (limited editions) and recycling of materials and images. This series was created in the past year, all from one single drawing. In a time of quarantine and distancing, they represent a substitute and a hope for the return of groups and social gatherings.”
