JIMI GLEASON | CHROMATIC REALM
November 2 – November 25Artist-Attended Opening Reception: Saturday, November 4, 1-3 p.m.Add to Calendar
The surfaces of Jimi Gleason’s paintings have always responded to both the light and space of the environment they are in. Working with shimmery pearlescent paints and mirror-like silver deposit, he carefully builds up layers that shift subtly. Many of his paintings feature densely worked edges framing largely vacant centers to keep the focus firmly on the quality of the color and light, and the viewer’s own perception of them.
His work is included in the collections of Dakota Studios, New York; Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation, Los Angeles, CA; Hilton Headquarters, McLean, VA; Sun America, Kaufman Broad Home Corporation, Los Angeles, CA; and numerous private collections. He lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
Learn more about the work directly from the artist on Saturday, November 4 from 1-3 p.m. during the opening reception. See how Gleason’s decades-long exploration of light and material has evolved into his latest body of work.
