First Floor Gallery, Sept 6 – November 30, 2019
Opening Reception September 6, 3-8 pm
Chris Jeffrey’s work will make your brain vibrate. He works primarily with perception – of light, line, color and form – to create instability between what you see and what you think you should be seeing. His mirror boxes create tiny and infinite alien worlds that you can peer into but not quite enter. The wall-based works use line – both painted and delineated – to create uncertainty in space. Precise and frenetic, Jeffrey’s pieces play with the quality of intensity, seeming to create pressure and relief depending on where you rest your eye. They are fascinating in the oldest sense of the word – you can’t really look away.
