Artist Reception with James Verbicky at Gilman Contemporary

July 8, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Gilman Contemporary announces James Verbicky, Omniscience, July 1 – August 1, 2016

Join us for an artist reception with James Verbicky during gallery walk, Friday July 8, 5~8pm.

James Verbicky is renowned for what he calls “media paintings”, large sculptural wood panels layered with vintage advertisements of popular brands and imagery from foreign magazines bought on the streets of Paris then covered in resin. The three dimensional surfaces transcend traditional painting. Layering vintage media graphics, advertisements, and familiar branding materials each painting brings forth a personal connection as a result of decades of media’s suggestive imagery. Paying attention to what is behind each piece of paper “makes the collage more interesting and creates a certain mood,” he says.

While Verbicky exhibits in galleries from Berlin to Mexico and across the United States, this will be his first exhibition in Sun Valley. With this in mind he has created eight new paintings from his most highly sought after series to present to collectors. Exhibition runs through July.
