Jim Houser: Piles

Tonight is the opening for Jim Houser‘s awesome new show, Make Room For The Emptiness, at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC through November 21st.

Houser is an imaginative self-taught artist whose work is born from his most personal experiences and thoughts which he meticulously translates for the viewer. To this effect the show includes a site-specific installation and music the artist composed just for the show. Houser’s work has a distinct typographic style as a result of his bold but limited color palette and use of words and repetitive shapes.

For more insight on the artist, check out Fecal Face’s in-depth interview by the artist’s friend, Adam Wallacavage.

    Well I’m a reader, but I’m not sure I can do one a week; hovweer, I’d love to join in and list the ones I do manage to get through – I just ordered 6 new books and am almost finished the one I’m reading now (mostly consigned to before I go to sleep at night these days – unless it’s amazing, Like 1000 Suns.)btw – I tried scanning my jewelry like you suggested – the jewelry looks great but the background not so much – I left the top down and then tried it with a white page over the jewelry with top down and it’s all shadowy. Suggestions? Because I really really think the idea is great…I just need to get it all together.

    People dont realize this but keywords are very crucial . if your keywords ar not effective enough your website or blog could be lost in the pile. Always keep track of your keywords to see how they’re performing. For help on how to keep track of your keywords try this great article.

    A book a week? I might have been able to do that before I sttraed quilting sewing collaging sketching art classes blogging emailing grandparenting…now I am lucky if I can get through an How- to art book in several weeks time; a novel or non fiction work at night at bed time over several weeks…but I too wouldn’t mind being in the group as a slow reader…to see the lists and to add to them in my snail paced way. Maybe I’ll read thirty in a year?
