Preview: Jim Houser "As Quiet As It's Kept" @ Lebasse Projects, Culver CityJuxtapoz // Saturday, 10 Mar 2012
One of our personal favorites, Jim Houser, will be opening a new solo show, "As Quiet As It's Kept" at LeBasse Projects' Culver City space tonight, March 10. The exhibition will feature a new series of canvas paintings, mixed media compositions and installations, all featuring Houser's use of words, phrases, and signature characters.
As LeBasse notes, "In Houser?s new exhibition, ?As Quiet As It?s Kept? the artist returns to Los Angeles with an insightful array of works ranging from canvas paintings, mixed media compositions and installations. Here, Houser continues his perpetual examination of self-exploration and the meditative peace found in quietness compared to the joys of sound.
"Through each whimsical character and play of words, the artist creates a visual dialog filled with personal and emotional tension. Inspired by his son, Houser also explores the impact of fatherhood and the new responsibilities faced. Within this body of work, the artist beautifully weaves the idea of our nature to protect and the experience of witnessing growth of the ones we love."
