The Polk Museum of Art at Florida Southern College is pleased to announce the opening of “STATUS: fluid/dynamic,” an exhibition featuring the work of Jason Myers.
This is the first solo museum show for Myers, a multi-disciplinary American artist based in Logansport, Indiana and Zwolle, Netherlands.
Myers works in a variety of mediums, and the aim of “STATUS: fluid/dynamic” is to share the unique approach he takes to create in his studio. This exhibition features work in steel, resin, computer-generated prints and LED video, and takes the form of paintings, sculptures, virtual paintings and installations. Complex, layered and exquisitely executed, this is a selection of works from several series he created over the past 10 years.
Myers views this museum exhibition as an important element for this body of work.
“The museum allows the opportunity to share the work in its purest form,” instead of basing selections on the sales strategy of galleries or art fairs, Myers said.
He said he hopes people will visit the museum to see something new and different than they may have ever experienced – not only new methods, mediums, working processes and subject matter, but also art that questions things they may have taken the given answers for granted.”
“I hope the audience is moved enough to evoke questions of their own, about their own lives, through a visual experience,” Myers said.
Myers’ exhibition runs through Dec. 10. Admission to the museum is free daily. Hours are Tuesdays – Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sundays, 1-5 p.m. Read a Q&A with Myers here. Visit www.polkmuseumofart.com for more information.
