October 7th through November 30th, 2015
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 8th, 5 – 9 PM
Cloud Gallery is pleased to present Jamie Adams: Cooper’s Beastiary October 7th through November 30th, 2015. Jamie Adams is a Professor of Art at Judson College, and his current show is based on the drawings of the early 20th Century type designer Oswald Cooper. His latest work is created through a complex process resulting in a drawing, a painting, and an aluminum print. Although Adams has shown extensively, this will be his first solo show in Seattle.
Painters have an imperfect choice between an almost alchemical love of technique or illusion. It may be that the human mind can only think of one aspect at a time: either a painting is what it represents, or it is a fabrication done on a flat surface. These new paintings by Jamie Adams use the vernacular of typography in an attempt to think of both the surface and what seems to be behind it at once, in a twofoldness of attention that takes in both equally.
The opening reception will be held on Thursday, October 8th from 5 – 9 p.m.
A second reception will take place on Thursday, November 12th from 5 – 9 p.m
