Featuring new works by Jason Alexander Byers
(CLEVELAND) March 24, 2014- HEDGE Gallery presents “TRANSITION”, a show comprised of Jason Alexander Byer’s most recent art projects including his tar and paper series and target themed collages.
Byers is a child of the Rust Belt (he is a native Pittsburgher with strong connections in Cleveland), who studied sculpture at Kent State University where he turned to the indulgent and wildly inventive arts and music scenes of Kent, Ohio. It was music that took him on tours across Europe and the United States as the vocalist of well-known Cleveland-based band Disengage.
After moving to Brooklyn, New York in 2009, Byers has continued working on fine art and music. Building on his fascination with cityscapes and skylines, his most recent art project involves tracing the positive and negative space of New York City’s churches using tar, watercolors, and india ink, which conjure up all of the implicit menace of a Rorschach inkblot, with pop culture as his prime target. While not strictly iconoclastic, his most recent projects nonetheless call to question an obsessive fascination with buildings and the ideas inside them.
Byers has most recently shown at Dickinson Roundell Inc. NY, NY and will be exhibiting at Garis & Hahn opening April 3rd, 2014.
TRANSITION opens Friday April 18, 5:00- 9:00p, at HEDGE Gallery, located at 1300 West 78th Street, Suite 200 in the 78th Street Studios complex.
Works will be on display through June 14, 2014.
