"Light Falls: Colter Jacobsen"
2007-06-01 until 2007-06-30
Jack Hanley Gallery
San Francisco, CA, USA United States of America

The Jack Hanley Gallery, San Francisco, is pleased to present a solo exhibition of the work of San Francisco-based artist Colter Jacobsen, titled Light Falls. The show will include a number of new memory drawings and watercolors interspersed with thrift store paintings, discarded photographs and snapshots, amongst other ephemera. “Light Falls is a mediation on the nature of drawing, painting, photography, symmetry, seeing, not seeing and memory,” describes Jacobsen. Using water as a metaphor, Jacobsen renders his work in pairs. Culled from his collection of abandoned photographs and other printed matter, he creates sets of meticulously detailed, naturalistic drawings and watercolors one of which is drawn from a source while the other is reflected from the memory of that source.

By using anonymous photographs, Jacobsen does not share in the initial memory of the photographed event but rather only in his own memory of the image. The subtle differences in his twinned drawings iterates how, as Jacobsen notes, “the dream of memory gets watered down and changes,” not only over time but merely in the course of moving from the eye to the mind.

Colter Jacobsen was born in 1975 in Ramona, California and lives and works in San Francisco.  His work has been shown in museums and galleries throughout the U.S. and Europe and was recently included in a group exhibition at White Columns in New York.
