Status: Fluid Dynamic, works by Jason Myers

May 10 – September 1, 2019

East Gallery 

Status: Fluid/Dynamic captures the dynamics of the world by illustrating the way our lives react to the fluid stream of information surrounding us.  The intent is to capture the emergence or destruction of a form by exposing the evolution of the process. Energy from the working process, influences its trajectory through cyberspace, then reacts once again when it returns in a material form.  A mark born in the physical world, navigates a virtual universe in dot matrix, and then reappears in the natural realm. 

A dialogue is formed, corrupted, questioned, and reformed throughout the duration of the piece. LIFE itself is broken down into selective layers by extracting content directly from the world around us. Each layer of content contains literal, conceptual, and visual assets reduced or enhanced to their purist form. The act of weaving similar and contrasting parts of each layer teases an addition to the 2 dimensional planes: a flirtation with the Z-axis.  The newly created fusion of elements challenges the question of space within an abstract thought. Space re emerges through a different vocabulary, forcing itself upon, around, and through the form in contradictory ways. The collective area on the canvas, which records the layers of expressive residue, displays the conscience interaction with these abstract ideas.  The residue is the manifestation of this work.

The artists – Dan Annarino, Rena Brouwer, Terry Lacy and Alan McConnell – have been painting and photographing the Indiana landscape for many years, as well as hiking and enjoying the various NICHES properties. During the project they will collaborate at the NICHES property sites, as well as doing studio work, to create a body of artwork based on their interpretations and personal experiences.
