Barry Whistler Gallery presents Jay Shinn: "New Drawings" opening reception
Jay Shinn, an interdisciplinary artist born in Magnolia, Arkansas, lives in Dallas, working out of both Dallas and New York. He is a contemporary Op artist that chiefly creates two-dimensional work that appear three-dimensional. He often employs the use of line, light, and shadow to create geometric volume within work. He transcends dimensions with premeditated precision creating a metamorphis of shape, light, and color.
Shinn’s work is often site-specific but ranges from works on paper, paintings, wall-installation, and sculptures. Through his practice, he has successfully been able to push the boundaries of opticallity, relational composition, and illusorily constructed shapes.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through April 4.
