Freddy Jouwayed: Forks in the Wave Function
Oct. 29, 2011 – Jan. 29, 2012
Opening Reception: Fri., Oct. 28, 6 - 9 pm
Miami-based artist Freddy Jouwayed presents a site-specific installation of his labor-intensive drawings on paper in the Center’s middle galleries.
Regarding this ongoing body of work, Jouwayed makes the following statement: A dot is made to appear on a surface. It is both a point of origin and of convergence. A dot bleeds through a surface to emerge behind the skin landing on another plane. Two more points now exist to react upon. One is an extension of the first, the other replication. Lines are added and reacted upon with other lines. Gestures begin to accumulate and forms then appear and multiply. From these forms, others come into existence, layering their meaning. More opportunities arise to contemplate. Surrender to a constant and meditative state of action and reaction to markings that accumulate, extracting layers and fragments of the mind then alluding to thoughts and manifestations of the state of being.
