Divisional

Artist James VerbickyJames Verbicky’s striking multimedia works defy easy description, deftly combining elements of collage with layers of resin and dye to form panels that burst with color and texture. Verbicky’s appropriation of vintage advertising imagery invites viewers to contemplate a culture of media bombardment, while his masterful sense of proportion and color stimulate the senses.

Though originally from Alberta, Canada, Verbicky’s singular talent has won him accolades worldwide. In 2008, the United States government granted the artist a coveted Extraordinary Ability Green Card in recognition of his important contribution to the arts. His work has been displayed in many institutions internationally, notably at a juried exhibition at the Louvre Museum in Paris.

“The media paintings bridge the gap between sculpture and painting by binding fragments of vintage media to one another, double-exposing language and image and melting them in upon themselves. By unearthing and layering the remnants of dozens of decades of disparate generations, the media paintings transcend simple words and images and become objects containing the essence of human culture.” – James Verbicky

James Verbicky’s work will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize.
