I'm excited to announce that Jessica Snow, who exhibited in last year's Mixtape exhibition and has released four editions with 20x200, will be having a solo show of her paintings this fall at Jen Bekman Gallery. Multiple Plot Points will open on Saturday, October 30th and run through December 4th, 2010.
In the newsletter for the 20x200 release of Curvilinear Time, I wrote about Jessica's paintings, speaking specifically about another piece, Amplitude, shown below.
What I love so much about Jessica's work is that it draws you in to this abstract world where you feel right on the cusp of substantial change and movement. It is the point right before anything could happen, and you feel as if you get to witness this perfect thing, for a split second, before it is gone—an ebb and flow of shape and color that will never be seen again. I look at the work and feel that at any moment, the weight will become too much—the image is seconds away from disappearing. The weaving of color created by overlapping areas is a perfect thing captured by Jessica, just before it advances and never returns. You look at the work feeling you are part of it but distant enough to understand you will never be able to fully grasp the fleeting moment unfolding before you.
You can see additional works by Jessica on the gallery website and you'll also have the chance to bid on one of Jessica's pieces, pictured below, at the upcoming 2x2 for Aids + Art auction. The auction takes place on October 23rd, 2010 at the Rachofsky House in Dallas, Texas. If you can't get to Texas don't worry--you can absentee bid on Jessica's piece as well as artwork from a range of amazing artists. Check out the whole catalog to view the works and place your bid!
