Conduit Gallery presents Beard Chewer, a solo exhibition of multimedia works by New York-based artist Jeff Gibbons.

Gibbons’ work is usually woven through with an element of the autobiographical, or at least self-referential. Endemic to his creative process is the care for or looking after of his objects of creation as a means of self-care. Sustaining the artist’s sense of self through the sense of something larger than self.

The paintings, drawings and sculptures in "Beard Chewer" illustrate the changes that come with the recent relocation of the artist to New York state and a six-month residency at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts. The array of works, created in three different states (Texas, New York and Massachusetts) each orient toward a poetic translation of the artist’s own sense of being and place.

At the center of the exhibition is a 20-foot painting titled Where’s Jeffrey?, a mobius-strip landscape populated with costumed illustrations of all of the people in the artist’s life.

The exhibition will remain on display through April 6.
