A collection of new works by Jim Verburg
Visual noise is carefully monitored, and regular negotiations are made between discipline and chance. With a subtle self-reflexivity that nods gently toward its own internal order, the work conveys everything from leakage to infinity. Light is treated as both subject matter and material for art-making; it is given the chance to resolutely perform its numerous roles as reflector and absorber of opacity and translucence. Verburg’s deceptively minimalist aesthetic eulogizes the ephemeral so that we will become fully absorbed, offering ourselves up to the cascading tonal gradients, deep pigment planes, and emotive human geometries of the non-representational.
- Alex Bowron, from When Light Becomes Form: The Work of Jim Verburg
