Jay Zerbe
Michigan City, Indiana

Drawing inspiration from the natural world, Jay Zerbe thinks of the canvas as an alternate universe where he can follow his imagination and convey a psychological frame of mind through abstraction. He reworks and repaints the surface of his canvas until he achieves his desired effect, which can result in up to 40 layers of paint. The work contrasts a lively sense of order with the haphazard nature of many overlapping shapes and lines. The movement in the work models a bird’s eye view of a big city; while strong structures hold the landscape in place, the transit around these fixed elements cannot be controlled. Jay’s paintings have a strong, graphic, mid-century feel. With a playful personality and sense of musicality, it is as if you are dancing through the artist’s mind and witnessing a timeline of the artwork’s journey.
