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.
