Painting B, 2010 by Jesse Brown
There's a good chance that even if you don't know the name Jesse Brown, you know the work if you've walked around town much.
If you been to the SODO lightrail station, then you've seen Jesse's work. He's also done tons of those colorful, graphic, text pieces outside of constructions sites. I've frequently admired these animals and wondered who did them. Remember the great jazz series he did during the SAM remodel? And I've always loved this piece outside of Franklin High School.
This Saturday, Jesse will open a show of new work called Of Paperand Light. For this upcoming show, he'll be creating his familiar geometric shapes via cutouts. "Rather than adding marks to the paper, the cutouts form the image and their absence allows for the interaction with light,the works combine drawing of graphic material with three dimensional structure." You can preview more images here.
