Solo Show in Seattle

I have an opening this Saturday, hope you can make it.

"Of Paper And Light"
Installation of paper cut-out sculptures 
with original music to accompany the works.

With these new works, Seattle artist Jesse Brown's shapes and patterns are 
added by taking away. Rather than adding marks to the paper, the cutouts form the image and their absence allows for the interaction with light, 
the works combine drawing of graphic material with three dimensional structure.
Artist Bio:

Jesse Brown is a multidisciplinary visual artist based in Seattle, Wa.
His work has been exhibited with galleries in Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, Chicago, New York, Tokyo, Berlin, London and Paris.

Jesse's work is often an exploration in geometric forms, pattern, shape and repetition which display a very clean, graphic quality. He is know for working in a wide variety of mediums including drawing, painting, sculpture, public art, installation, 
artist books, video and animation.

From the gallery-
"Artist JESSE BROWN will be transforming the space with his paper cut-out sculpture work.  The subtlety of his choice of white on white allows for a powerful interaction of space and shadow. As a new addition to the COMING SOON concept, we are also launching retail products to be sold at the event.  These products are designed and made by JESSE BROWN + COMING SOON.  The items will be limited as they will not only be exclusively sold at the show and the COMING SOON online shop [] but directly relate to the concept of JESSE's installation- all original designs. "

Some photos of a mural I designed a few months ago at West Seattle High School.
I taught a handmade typography workshop with a group of students there who selected the quotes and helped paint the mural, they ended up making some really rad type drawings and paintings, maybe i'll post some of them later.
*Project in collaboration with Artworks & Ymca

VHS Library

This is a project I've been slowly working on for some time now.
The idea came after Derek and I watched a documentary borrowed from the Seattle Public Library, it was this amazing Buckminster Fuller video that was in the most hideous vhs box with out any of the original packaging. It seemed to me that a good film should also have good packaging and this would hopefully influence more people to watch the film. I'm specifically interested in the VHS boxes as they are sort of a dying format. So the I started searching through local library branches to find films that had the same kind of potential as the Fuller documentary, I would check them out, research the film and then design new packaging which would then replace the old. The tapes are returned back into circulation.
More of these are in the works, but here are a few images of some recent films I worked on.

Chicago Show


Let There Be Geo is an art exhibition at Columbia College Chicago’s Leviton A+D Gallery that surveys the art of contemporary artists who use geometric form in their work. While employing geometric form in art is not a new phenomenon, geo forms are appearing in some of the most aesthetically progressive work being made today. Twenty-first century responses to geometric form make use of a variety of styles and media, from painting and video to photography and sculpture. The works in Let There Be Geo examine today’s incarnation of geometric form.
"The persistence of artistic geometric forms hints at a continuum, or a legacy, or some coy deity made present in this world by his shadow, cast as a polygon, on the eyeball of the artist," writes Jason Foumberg in the exhibition's essay."

Participating artists include: Jesse Brown, Nick Butcher, Jeff Canham, Jacob Hashimoto, Maya Hayuk, Cody Hudson, Steven Husby, Barbara Kasten, Chad Kouri, Nadine Nakanishi, John Parot, Sam Prekop, Archer Prewitt, Geoffrey Todd Smith, Jason Urban and Vanesa Zendejas.

Let There Be Geo is curated by Elizabeth Burke-Dain.

WHEN: March 4 – April 24, 2010
March 4 from 5-9 p.m. Opening Reception

WHERE: Columbia College Chicago’s Leviton A+D Gallery
