Marji Gallery & Contemporary Projects is proud to announce Jay Zerbe’s solo show the culmination of a 2-year effort to expand his colorful painted structures to larger formats.
The works reflect Zerbe’s interest is color, which he uses in many creative ways: to create space, to create rhythms and flow, and to evoke memory. Strong composition also typifies his work. Surfaces are worked and re-worked in multiple layers, to arrive at the final vision.
This is serious, sometimes severe work, but always strongly emotionally engaging.
Wander through these landscapes, cityscapes, nowhere-scapes, that seek a dialogue with the viewer. These are contemplative pieces, open narratives, waiting for the observer to join in.
