Big Medium presents Jonathan Faber: Material opening reception
Jonathan Faber received a BFA from Alfred University and an MFA from the University of Texas at Austin. He was the recipient of the Pollock Krasner Fellowship and the Joan Mitchell Foundation. He is interested in making work that is primarily abstract, yet also part of a lexicon of real world imagery. In each painting there is a negotiation of extremes – a friction between concept and intuition. The artist keenly balances a methodical and immediate approach to each image through a broad vocabulary of spontaneous and deliberate form, color and marks. As a result the paintings hover between an abstract substance and an ambient space.
Following the opening reception, the exhibition runs until October 1.
