Nate Jeffery MFA Thesis Exhibition
Reception for the Artist: TBA
Artist Statement: Using intimate environments as a metaphor for human headspace, with all it’s clutter and competing perspectives, I create compositions that are both literal and figurative; displaying actual spaces where individuals are engaged both with each other and, sometimes, the viewer. The liminal space, areas of obscuration, and pentimenti can be partially seen as aspects of temporality, but they are also a representation of the ineffable complexities and contradictions that each of us carry within. In this way, the visual and pictorial tensions between obscure space and the figure(s) illustrate the complex dichotomies that are inherent in being human.
