How Jim Houser Made Room For The Emptiness

Juxtapoz // Friday, 06 Nov 2009

In his third solo show at Jonathan Levine gallery, Houser created a new series of paintings and sculptures which he’s incorporated into a site-specific installation. Additionally, the artist composed a new score of original instrumental music that he played in the space throughout the exhibition, enhancing the experience on an audio-sensory level by complementing the tone, rhythm and repetition of the work.

Make Room For The Emptiness marks a subtle departure in style and sophistication for Houser, resulting in a cleaner, simpler, more mature approach to his installation. Simply put, we love the new space Jim Houser has created and have never felt quite so full with emptiness.
