Opening Friday, November 8, 2013 from 6-8PM, through February 22, 2014, Jackson Fine Art in Buckhead presents acclaimed photographer Tierney Gearon’s COLORSHAPE series. A contemporary artist who had gained both noted critical and commercial recognition in the US and abroad for her powerful and intense color photographs, Gearon’s new series COLORSHAPE revolves around subject of color and shape where upon the artist builds on site handmade vibrant colored Plexiglass structures in picturesque landscapes, snow-toped mountains, urban streets and neighborhoods.
Known for her use of incorporating her children and their friends into her work, COLORSHAPE brilliantly captures her subjects, literally, suspended in a moment, in the multi-color plexi-shaped sculptures– while transporting both the subject and viewer to another world from the familiar to the unknown strange land of encased children and animals in prisms of reflecting color.
To celebrate the arrival of the series, Jackson Fine Art is hosting an opening night reception and artist meet and greet on Friday, November 9 from 6-9PM that is open to the public.
Additionally, Gearon and the gallery invite children and their families to join them for free carnival and book signing of her newly released children’s Alphabet Book published by Damiani. The carnival kicks of at 11AM on
Saturday, November 9th at Jackson Fine Art and includes interactive art projects sponsored by Colorwheel of Decatur, an appearance by Reptile Man-the snake handler, and cotton candy and cupcakes galore.
