JEFF SHERIDAN

AS ABOVE

SOLO EXHIBIT | JANUARY 4 - 25, 2019

OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, JANUARY 4th 7-10pm

 

 

This January, Stephanie Chefas Projects is delighted to present As Above, a solo exhibition by Portland-based artist Jeff Sheridan. Known for his monochromatic imagery, Sheridan’s work explores self-organizing symmetries in the natural world. Affected by elemental conditions, natural objects organize in a way that is neither crystalline nor inorganic. Water erosion sculpts mountains as life populates the resulting fertile pockets. Thematic and fluid, these natural symmetries are accentuated through repetition, which in turn creates texture and form structures in negative space.

In As Above, the artist moves beyond logical assumptions to ask questions such as “What is the natural mind?" and "What can be obtained from an 'archaic' mind?” Sheridan elucidates, “The modern technological supposition that we are the highest order of human to live on this planet is flanked by a great body of thought still influencing our lives, an ancient mind unable to separate subjective and objective, finding meaning in every great cosmic or earthly rumbling. This old mindset still holds a key to linking these realities. It’s also this archaic mind that got us in this present predicament. Which is a predicament in itself.”


Taking Sheridan's concept to an even higher plane, As Above captures the essence of a shifting cosmos. A cold and chaotic wind of dreams, power, and potentiality drift over a perpetually eroding landscape, life trickles in, flourishes, and disappears. Supervised by resident solar deities, light itself becomes the only real protagonist in our eternal drama.

The opening reception for As Above will be held at Stephanie Chefas Projects on Friday, January 4th from 7-10pm. Stephanie Chefas Projects is located in Portland, Oregon at 305 SE 3rd Avenue on the second floor of the Urban Row building. The exhibition will be on view through January 25th, 2019 and is free and open to the public.
