MARY KARNOWSKY GALLERY @ MARY KARNOWSKY GALLERY
The Merry Karnowsky Gallery Presents:
THIS PLACE IS OURS NOW
New Work by Jim Houser
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 6 , 8 – 11 pm
Opening on Saturday May 6, 2006, Merry Karnowsky is pleased to present This Place is Ours Now, an exhibition of paintings and wall installations by artist Jim Houser. This will be the artist’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, and is the culmination of several years of focused studio work. Houser is known for his work in diverse media -- drawing, painting and installations. This exhibition will include entirely new works, along with a few site specific, large-scale wall and sculptural installations.
Jim Houser uses fragments of personal experience to capture and catalogue imagery while using the convention of the fine and decorative arts as a formal point of departure. Densely layered and vaguely topographical, his paintings suggest sequences of cosmic secrets and fragments populated by science fiction, animals, and caricatured figures. In his intricate wall installations, space itself becomes a physical container for pictorial encoded thoughts and symbols. Houser’s dynamic kaleidoscopic surfaces, which continue to unfold after prolonged viewing, map to poignant personal moments in time drawn from the artists life.
As a graphic designer, Jim Houser has worked for toy Machine, Designarium, and Nike. In 2005, Ginko Press released the hard bound book BABEL which catalogues Houser's life in the arts.
