Swec & Jared Theis
23 July - 10 September, 2009
berman gallery is pleased to present Jana Swec and
Jared Theis, two central Texas artists who use expressive
line quality and personal themes to illustrate their
quietly seductive work.
Austin Studio Tour co-founder and member of the Sodalitas
art collaborative, Jana Swec finds
inspiration in nature. The lines of her pen and ink
drawings undulate across the paper, creating intricate,
abstracted forms of merging trees, root structures,
and elephants' trunks and legs.
Theis combines his mastery of finely detailed ceramics
and his passion for music to create the body of work
/Measures/. These slabs of clay are delicately etched,
resulting in relief-like qualities that rhythmically
push and pull into the surfaces.
join us Thursday July 23 from 6-8 pm for the opening
reception and again Saturday August 8th at 1pm for
an informal musical performance by the artists.
