New Work: Justin Fry and Jordan Domont

October 7 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

New Work: Justin Fry and Jordan Domont

Opening Reception: October 7th 7-10pm

Shows run through November 3rd

 

This is a collection of paintings made by two close friends who have been working in many ways, side by side for over a decade now.  They are excited to present new work together, for the first time, at Radiant Space, and to be doing it now. From students to professionals, they are eager to join forces one more time in an effort to at the very least, take the piss out of each other.

 

To infuse depth and luminosity into his work, Jordan Domont employs a palette of punchy hues. Experimenting, he discovered that when inks layer heavily onto Mylar, it creates a rich, almost melted effect. Pigments become slightly volatile, even mercurial, and their behavior enlivens the entire process. Jordan likes to explore how different amalgams of color work together, because it sure trumps sitting back and watching paint dry.

 

In contemporary life we are surrounded by excess and over-stimulation, subject to the overwhelming flooding of our senses. This is the present condition that we are required to navigate, one that results in a loss of sharpness of sensory experience. We have become a product of this heavily designed environment as it contributes to and constructs our belief systems and identities. Justin Fry’s work mixes key elements of these visual languages that reflect culture and that are used as beacons within the visual white noise that surrounds us throughout life.
