“Jamey Gray: Irrational Aesthetics” will be on view at Arts on Main’s Kiser Gallery beginning September 12, 2016. A closing reception will be held on Saturday, October 8 from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. It will include beer, wine, and BBQ along with live music featuring experimental guitar sketches by 1970s Film Stock.
This exhibition will include 26 works made between 2014 and 2016. Jamey will be showing a mixture of mid to large scale canvases and numerous digital prints produced in small editions.
Jamey uses the term artistic participation to describe his practice of sourcing existing datasets (number, text, image) and transforming them into new works using visualization and diagramming. As a child of post-minimalism and op and sibling of post-internet artists, his paintings and digital prints have a controlled execution and grid structure coupled with colors he calculates from sets of images mined from social media. Mathematics, art history, and popular culture are central themes in his work.
