Def Perspectives: Paintings and Drawings by Jesse Thomas
September 11 - October 25, 2014
Enterprise Square Galleries (10230 Jasper Ave)
Jesse Thomas' paintings are the product of a speculative endeavor which proposes imaginary spaces, events, and situations. They are designed to test the narrative limits of static pictorial space in relation to cinema, the novel, and virtual spaces and experiences. The finished paintings are the result of a collection of ideas, processes, and revisions. Various elements derived from installation, lens-based imagery, direct observation, and the use of digital technologies--applied and as a creative source or point of origin--are reconciled through the filtering craft and technique of drawing and painting.
Jesse Thomas is an Assistant Professor in Painting at the University of Alberta.
