Bouquet Paintings and Other Works


Thursday August 18th 5-9pm
Appointments through September 15th

The Bouquet Paintings emerge from years of exploring and abstracting the forms of plants, flowers, and vessels in our sculptural work. In this series of paintings on linen, we play with the graphic space of the picture plane, in which bulbous floral forms push at the edges of the rectangular frame, and negative and positive space are equally weighted in the construction of the composition. The formal decisions within this body of work are in service of a grounded stability and balance in search for a feeling of confidence, peace, and fullness. Like the japanese suiseki, we approach each image as a potential spiritual icon, imbuing each work with a humble loftiness to hold the wildness around us still for a moment and give us a chance to breathe.

Tree no. 1

Thomas Jackson

June 22nd 2018

Heron Arts is pleased to announce "Tree no. 1," a new installation by Thomas Jackson. Expanding on ideas he has explored in his "Emergent Behavior" photographic series, Jackson's piece will juxtapose organic and manufactured materials to promote fresh perspectives on the complex balance between natural and manmade systems. The piece will feature a 15-foot "Sango-Kaku” (Coral Bark Japanese Maple) surrounded by floating LED grow lights and plastic take out containers. While Jackson frequently works with organic materials in outdoor settings, this will be the first time he has incorporated living flora into an indoor sculpture. The work presses the viewer not only to contemplate our dysfunctional relationship with the natural landscape, but also to envision a sustainable future in which natural and man-made systems are integrated and intertwined, and more resilient as a result. The exhibition will also feature a number of prints from the “Emergent Behavior” series.
