ExhibitionsIn Our Exhibit Space:
This show is about written language, and how it's made, how we all intuitively recognize ideas and images and their relationship to spoken language. The brush paintings in this show seek to convey abstract concepts using simple images. As a viewer, look, then consider, then read the name and feel free to disagree and attach your own meaning--because in doing so, you have become a language maker, exploring the very foundations of the earliest forms of written language.
...My images are intended to be ideographic, that is looking like something that conveys an idea. The more complex images are intended to feel as though they are a composite of pictograms in a language that we do not know how to read, but we can guess at the meanings.
-Jonathan Pazer, excerpts from his artist's statement on "Emergence of Character"
Jonathan's work has appeared in Albany NY at the Albany Women's Club, Redhook, NY at the RHCAN gallery in several shows, including a juried show in 2012. His digital brush and ink paintings were shown in New Paltz last Spring. Jonathan lives and works in Gardiner, NY where he is currently engaged as part of a group effort to gather together Gardiner's Arts community in order to create a 'Gardiner Arts Trail' in the hopes of bringing more visitors to our area for Arts Tourism.
"Emergence of Character" will run throughout September. Keep an eye on our exhibition space; Jonathan's show "Tampering with Seals" will be coming in October.
A portion of the sales of art purchased benefits the Library.
