INFLUX" Opening Reception

James Oliver Gallery

723 Chestnut Street 4th Floor Philadelphia PA 19106
  • Saturday June 30th 2012

The James Oliver Presents INFLUX, featuring artist Joe Meiser.

Joe Meiser is a renowned sculptor, installation and performance artist and professor at Bucknell University. Meiser's experiences range from working as a studio assistant to designing toys for Hasboro. Meiser's work focuses primarily on exploring the universality of the human condition and its historical temporality. Through sculpture, photography, video, and performance art, INFLUX offers an alternate reality where the physical becomes metaphysical, serious becomes playful, and the concrete becomes fluid. A robot struggles with an identity crisis, Steven Hawking as Elijah ascends into Heaven on chariot of fire, and giant Homo Sapien skulls are twisted and distorted into amorphous floating forms, all of which make the viewer question their own ideas of reality. JOG is delighted to present it's first solo exhibition of the season.
