" Jimmy O誰eal: Works from the Rose Art Museum - Painting 4"
2004-04-02 until 2004-06-03
Joie Lassiter Gallery
Charlotte, NC, USA United States of America

Joie Lassiter Gallery is proud to present a rising star from the South - Jimmy O誰eal. Born in Atlanta and now living and working in Asheville, NC, Jimmy O誰eal creates his art in a unique process with dizzying and challenging results. This exhibition "Works from the Rose Art Museum - Painting4鋳 opens publically Friday April 2nd and runs until Thursday June 3 is located at 525 North Tryon Street (Odell Building), Charlotte, NC.

In his works from 選n Karezza Noemata which was part of the 善aintings4 exhibition at the Rose Art Museum in Boston, MA, O誰eal challenges the notion that a painting is a discrete entity, confined to its place on the wall. By using mirrorized paint (invented by the artist) each viewer has a unique and very personal experience, O誰eal created this substance from a laborious process, driven by the desire to make paintings in which each mark not only stands for itself and what it represents but also captures everything else around it in real time. The pictorial space is formed by and dependent upon the spectator.

Electrocution drawings: Using a pen connected to a voltage box, as O誰eal scribes he completes the circuit and a small hole is burned upon the paper. Each hole represents the artist痴 literal connection to his work, physically feeling each mark that is placed.

Straddling past and present, real and fictitious, revelation and obscurity, O誰eal痴 subject matter- whether figurative, allegorical, abstract or symbolic combined with his choice of materials, conjures a magical and challenging reality, questioning our idea of what painting and drawing is and all of what it could be.
