This Time – With Feeling
September 8th – September 30th
Studio22 Fine Art is thrilled to introduce emerging artist and abstract painter, Ran Jacob. His latest body of work has been a labor of love for the artist for the past two years.
The immensely saturated works that comprise this new exhibit are intended as humorous impressions of the multifaceted nature of our collective lived experiences and the relationships created throughout.
“Through subtle winks or heavy-handed finger pointing, it is my intention to reflect and cultivate in my paintings the same terrible, anxious beauty that I believe exists in all things. The contrasting duality of existence is precisely what life and, in turn, my paintings are all about.” -Ran Jacob
Preview and presale for this exhibit will take place Thursday, September 8th and Friday, September 9th.
Exhibit opens to the general public for purchasing on Saturday, September 10th.
Ran Jacob is an emerging abstract painter and drawer currently residing in Kjipuktuk (Halifax, NS).
As a life-long student of visual arts, Jacob most recently received his BA in Fine Arts from NSCAD University in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
This past summer the artist was selected by the Senior Leadership of Nova Scotia Health and members of the NSCAD faculty to work alongside three other artists on a commissioned artwork to be installed in Halifax’s Victoria General Hospital.
Utilizing rhythmic, flamboyant maximalism, Jacob’s works are intentionally saturated with concentrated sensory reflections, compressed into quasi-abstracted large-scale records.
Raised in Kingston, Ontario, Ran is looking forward to exhibiting his latest body of work back in the city of his youth and beloved hometown.
