JT Thompson: The Process Of Abstraction


JT Thompson
The Process of Abstraction
Show dates: December 8, 2014 – January 7, 2015
Opening reception:
Friday, December 12, 6-9 p.m.

The Process of Abstraction, a solo exhibition of new work by JT Thompson, opens at CS Gallery on December 8. Please join us on Friday, December 12 from 6-9 p.m., for the artist reception and to meet the artist.

The exhibition presents a new series of artworks exploring a style he calls Geometric Surrealism. This style explores the use of multiple sources of light as an aid in creating spatial depth in abstract compositions. Light reflecting and refracting off of multiple geometric planes guides the viewer’s eye, and gives shape to what might otherwise be a chaotic mass of line and color. In this process the work he produces is dynamically bold, stimulating and mysterious. The images capture the viewer and entice the eye to explore the composition.

Thompson’s work is inspired by the tension between certain dualities: the conscious and subconscious, good and evil, light and dark. As an abstract artist he is philosophically interested in the subjectivity of the mind, and it’s capacity for skewing perspectives of external events or the physical world.

JT Thompson is a Columbus-based artist, working primarily in oils. He is the co-founder of Underground64 Studios, a shared artist studio space and classroom facility. Thompson’s work can be found in the collections of the Columbus Museum of Art, the Downtown Hilton (Columbus, OH), Northern Kentucky University(Highland Heights, Kentucky, and private collectors.

“Having had a camera in my hand since the age of 5 years old, I am an individual with a passion for seeing the beauty & personality in people and capturing it with the use of a lens and showing it the most interesting and beautiful way possible. I am partial to Black & White photographs and other imaging affects that use Dramatic and Soft lighting techniques. I am always challenged and inspired to capture things seen everyday (including people) with a fresh and different prospective.”

BAILLIEUL - FRONT

NX Presents September Featured Artist – Tom Baillieul


“Put On a Happy Face” What if you encountered a familiar symbol in an unexpected, even disturbing, context? That’s one of the questions posed by my most recent work. My life-long fascination with cultural symbols led me to imagine the ubiquitous yellow “smiley” face in a variety of seemingly contradictory situations. I want people to realize that the world is a much more complex place than we might wish, and things we thought were clear can take on a different meaning in a different context. I seek to create narratives about issues of importance in our 21st centuryworld. For this series I sought to build ambiguity into each painting or collage, and invite viewers to complete each narrative based on their own lives and experiences. I hope you’ll join me.

SPECIAL CLOSING EVENT: Char Norman as Curator AND Artist


SPECIAL CLOSING EVENT: Char Norman as Curator AND Artist Due to special circumstances CS is hosting a special event soft closing for both of Char Norman’s amazing shows:
Friday August 29th, 6-9pm

Welcome to CS Gallery’s Summer Detour Series!! CS Gallery presents: Summer Detour Series with Guest Curator Char Norman

Showing: August 16th – 27th
Artist Reception: August 22nd, 6-9pm

To keep this summer fresh and exciting CS is embarking on a new collaborative
adventure!! Throughout June, July, and August we will be inviting some very exciting individuals to curate some amazing shows!!

For our August Installment we are collaborating with internationally known fiber artist and papermaker Char Norman to showcase some amazing artists! ˇ

About the Exhibition:
Paper as Substrate or Structure is a special exhibition curated by nationally known papermaker, Char Norman.
Paper can be a fragile and fleeting material or a structural element in the toughest sense of the word. This material, with us for thousands of years, has changed the course of history and contributed to civilization as an integral part of art making. Traditionally paper acted as a substrate for work but has stepped boldly into the realm of structure. This collection of work embodies both ideologies. The artists selected for this exhibition employ both handmade and commercial paper in unusual and interesting ways. Those artists who use paper as surface have pushed beyond traditional definitions while those who choose paper as the structural element of the work have redefined what the essence of paper might be.

About the Curator:
Char Norman is an accomplished fiber artist specializing in papermaking and fiber sculpture. She received a Master of Fine Art from Claremont Graduate University and a Bachelor of Art from Scripps College. She has lectured and exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally. She has developed and conducted workshops for all ages, worked as a consultant to area schools and community arts organizations and has held the position of Associate Provost and Dean of Faculty at Columbus College of Art & Design. Her work can be seen at www.charnorman.com

NX Gallery Presents – Char Norman: Nature as Deity – SHOW EXTENDED


SPECIAL CLOSING EVENT: Char Norman as Curator AND Artist Due to special circumstances CS is hosting a special event soft closing for both of Char Norman’s amazing shows:
Friday August 29th, 6-9pm
Nature as Deity The idea of Nature as an object of veneration and worship is as old as man. Numerous religions and cultures have built upon this notion- even as some religions have evolved pagan roots are still evident. Tied into the worship of nature is the idea of the inter-connectedness of all things with none dominant over the other. As our society and world are facing an environmental crisis which may even lead to our demise it is more important than ever to understand this symbiotic relationship and embrace eco-psychology. I present nature in sacred spaces and attitudes as a way to bring understanding and importance to the issues at hand. The work is created through a labor-intensive almost meditative process. The making of the paper is an act of worship and reconstruction of plant fibers; embedded within are healing herbs. The sewing of layers and natural elements to the surface references mending of worn or damaged goods as well as the nurturing action of women’s work. The many layers within each piece denote the layers of religious history from paganism to Etruscan to roman to contemporary Christianity. Just as these processes and materials are woven together, the interconnectedness and the sanctity of nature is reinforced.

NX July Featured Artist – Matt Yoho “Exorcism Notes”


NX Gallery presents: Matt Yoho – “Exorcism Notes” Showing July 8th – 30th Artist Reception July 11th 6-9 pm In his own words: Deus ex machine, ergo sum. Which roughly translated is: god (ghost, spirit) in the machine, therefore I am. My work, particularly in the last year, has a certain amount of introspection and darkness contained within it. For me, creating a meaningful work of art isn’t about copying, or even re-imagining the world around me. It’s about digging around inside myself – sifting through memories, occurrences, and emotions; and bringing these parts of myself together in an external representation. For instance I deal with a lot of imagery that isn’t the most pleasant: conjoined twins, revolvers, my own face; and a lot of times I will use text that’s biblical or psychological in origin because those are the ideas that resonate within me on one level and appall me on another level. I think this is a good metaphor for my inner life and maybe the lives of a lot of other people: On one hand life is great, on the other hand life is horrible. Most likely a lot of the themes in my work come from growing up in rural West Virginia. Where I grew up we had abandoned farms, hollows full of dumped cars from the 50’s, all set in hills and forests so thick the ground never saw the light of day. So, I’m digging around in my subconscious, panning through this and that, and finding those little golden nuggets of idiosyncratic paradoxes and putting them on display for all the world to see.

NX Gallery Presents June Artist April Sunami


In her own words:
For several years I have painted women with fanciful hair and/or body coverings (i.e. burka, hijab, veil, etc). When I first started painting this theme I was interested in exploring the beauty of the female face and combining it with flowing shapes to represent hair or the covered form of a body. I’m still engaged in the idea of coupling the abstract with the figurative, but now I’m also preoccupied with the larger theme of contrasts. Representational/abstract, light/dark, high/low, decorative/substantive, symmetry/asymmetry, material/idea, intuition/intellect, power/impotence, Western hegemony/marginalization, universal/specific and process/result are few of the dichotomies to which I attempt to bring balance.
As a foundational base of my paintings I utilize oil and acrylic mediums. I render the faces and flesh in oil and I use acrylic to paint the ground palette of the body, clothes, and background. I love the organic and sensual quality of oil paint, but I also appreciate the fast and flexible properties of acrylic. To build texture I use everything including paper beads, collage, fabric, cork, post it notes, potpourri, mirrors, stones, breakaway glass from car accidents, and anything else I can affix to a surface (I’m still working on a good adhesive to incorporate a kitchen sink!).
Like most artists, making art is a means of creating emotional and spiritual harmony and thus a means of staying sane. My paintings are an expression of my attempt to bring internal conflicts into balance and agreement. I present it to other people in hopes that it might be a cathartic experience for them. It is my overall objective to create the kind of unity in painting that has a visceral effect on the viewer.

NX Featured Artist April 2014: Ashley Vance


In her own words:
The Freedom of Movement
My artistic perception starts with Freedom leaving no boundaries or limitations on creativity, with a primary viewpoint in the abstract realm. My art expresses movement and fluidity taking you on an endless journey through the dimensions, waves of color, and somber lines of a freedom movement through art expression. I invite people to get lost in individual perception as you walk away with your own understanding of what freedom means to you.
I love to paint it is my peace, and allows me to go on a voyage every time I pick up the brush. With no restraints, rules, or confinements I paint as a form of self expression. Imagine a world where the only way to communicate was through art. My paintings allow me express myself without words because art is a silent language that speaks volumes. I want you to walk away with what art means to you, and allow it to take you on your own individual journey. Indulge in these vibrant, colorful, modern statement pieces that speak in the midst of silence. Join my creative movement and let art free your mind.
Yours Truly,
Ashley Vance
