Jim Kempner Fine Art is pleased to announce Small Invasions, an exhibition of recent sculpture
and mixed media work on paper by Jerry Mischak. This will be the artist’s third solo exhibition
at the gallery and will be up through July 10th, 2016. An opening reception for the artist will be
held on Thursday, June 2nd, from 6-8 pm.
With a focus on domestic interiors, Mischak develops a unique
pictorial language structured around exaggerated form and color.
Recognized for his colorful vinyl tape sculptures and collages, he
presents a contemporary take on the classic still life. Using the still
life as a vehicle with which to explore themes of nostalgia and
commonality, Mischak continues his focus on the transfiguration
of tables into universal resting places. He is interested in the way
everyday objects tell the stories of individualized histories. Made
with paper, synthetic paint, oil stick, and vinyl tape, the collage
provides a sculptural surface and texture that encourages a dialogue
between materials. Skilled in traditional painting techniques,
Mischak chooses to work with tape as he is interested in the conventionality
of the material and its quotidian function in everyday
life. Inspired by the formalism of 19th and 20th century French
masters such as Cézanne and Matisse, Mischak’s still lifes
are expressive narratives of human experience.
