Jason Spivack

Jason Spivack is an island guy. Not islands as places, but islands as floating bits and pieces in a plasma sea of nuanced, deeply layered surfaces - thoughtful canvases that reflect the painterly care with which they were composed. Since childhood, he had spent summers on Maine"s coast with his parents, one a ceramist, the other a nationally respected psychologist who is also a talented metal sculptor.

Spivack's mark-making on these richly constructed surfaces consists of a series of tiny beach stones "the stones" of the exhibit's title - each painted with absolute photographic accuracy and perspective, their shadows throwing them into motion across the flat stillness of the canvasses.
