This Place is Ours Now

This Place is Ours Now,Featuring new work by Jim Houser

Opening Saturday May 6, 2006, Merry Karnowsky, in sponsorship with Motorola and Swindle Magazine, is pleased to present This Place is Ours Now, an exhibition of paintings and wall installations by artist Jim Houser. This will be the artist’s first solo show at the gallery, and is the culmination of several years of focused studio work. Known for his work in diverse media—drawing, painting and installations— Houser’s exhibition will include entirely new works, along with a few site-specific large-scale wall and sculptural installations.

Jim Houser uses fragments of personal experience to capture and catalogue imagery while using the convention of the fine and decorative arts as a formal point of departure. Densely layered and vaguely topographical, his paintings suggest sequences of cosmic secrets and fragments populated by science fiction, animals, and caricatured figures. In his intricate wall installations, space itself becomes a physical container for pictorial encoded thoughts and symbols. Houser’s dynamic kaleidoscopic surfaces, which continue to unfold after prolonged viewing, map to poignant personal moments in time drawn from the artists life.

Opening Reception: May 6th, 8-11 PM
Exhibition Dates, May 6th - June 3rd 2006
