Silhouette City and the Pastoral Paradox Reprise
September - November 12, 2005
In his first solo show in Atlanta since his
relocation to NYC, J Ivcevich expands on his trademark techniques
of bonding photographic imagery and painting through layers of resin.
The exhibition includes a full scale installation, representing
a return to the original series of paintings that started his career.
The juxtaposition of pastoral scenery and urban imagery of the photo-based
work recalls Ivcevich's home environments from his childhood in
Indiana to his present day life in industrial Brooklyn. The artist's
new work addresses his search for a peculiarbeauty, serenity, and
profoundness in otherwise overlooked and mundane everyday surroundings.
