What are we up to..
Our June-July Exhibit. Opening Reception Saturday, June 11th
Jessie Ring (°1975, Hershey Penn, United States) is an artist who mainly works with mixed media mosaics. Jessie tries to develop forms that do not follow logical criteria, but are based only on subjective associations and formal parallels, which incite the viewer to make new personal associations. Her artwork never shows complete structure. This results in the artist imagining her own interpretation while inviting others to do the same. Her works often escape recognizable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. Created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round with circles and squares. Her works are meant to be observed with touch as well as sight. Multilayered images arise in which the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality is questioned. By choosing mainly formal solutions, she finds that movement reveals an inherent awkwardness, a humour that echoes our own vulnerabilities. Jessie Ring currently lives and works in Loveland.

I don't know where it comes from – it's just something I do. It's something I have to do. Sure, I have some fragments here and there of an art “education”, but certainly nothing to brag about. (though over about a 17 year period, I did manage to scrap together an Associate in Fine Art.) I just wanted to do what I felt like doing, not another charcoal drawing of the same still life that 30 other people are drawing at the same time. Ugh. Anyway, here's some of my stuff. Most of it's fairly recent. There's no overall theme, but I've tried to group some similar ones together...I guess there's multiple themes going on, really. I dunno...I get bored. Sometimes I come back and re-visit older styles & techniques, sometimes I can't remember how I did some things. Some things are recycled from my old sketchbooks. Some of these things are the kinds of things I've drawn since I could hold a crayon. Well, that's my story. I hope you enjoy the paintings. Maybe you'll adopt one and take it home with you. When you do, be sure to post a picture of it in it's new home. I like to see where they live. Thanks.
