2012 SEASON OPENING AND ARTIST RECEPTION FOR JEREMY WAGNER AND JENNIFER DELILAH, with a preview of work by other artists to be shown through October 15th, 2012
Jennifer Delilah lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Born in Texas in 1965, her early childhood experiences in the wake of the Civil Rights Movement have formed the basis of her subject matter, challenging ideas of race, class and gender. Humor is an evident ingredient in her work, as well as a compassionate view of the foibles of humanity, and it's inevitable correction by nature.
Delilah's technique evolved through a process of experimentation and technical study in the mediums of oils, encaustics, and watercolor. The narrative quality of her paintings derives from this multi-disciplinary practice, and can be read as historical documentation and re-contextualization of events in world history. She attended the Arts Magnet High School in Dallas Texas, with an emphasis on figure drawing and painting, and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the San Francisco Art Institute.
Jeremy Wagner is an artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. Born in 1978, in Boston MA. Wagner earned a BFA in printmaking from Rhode Island School of Design and subsequently an MFA in painting from Hunter College. Wagners work combines his training in both concentrations, facilitating a unique approach to painting. Often working directly on steel surface and using non-traditional mediums, he embodies his appreciation for architecture and nature with a keen eye for detail.
Preview works by Mariana Cook, Rez Williams, Cindy Kane, Doug Kent, Dan van Landingham, Robert JP Hauck, Andrea Mary Marshall, Jiyoung Park, Valerie Sonnenthal, David Tierney, Lily Morris and others.
