Limelight, a solo exhibition of mixed media works by Dick Jemison September 16 – October 15.
His works are a consolidation of his influences driven by a vague, abstract notion and ideal of beauty. They reflect on his interests of evocative marks and detritus of our civilization.This is the first showing of his latest body of work, Limelight. It combines an incredible tension and incorporates a vibrant and dynamic direction.
