JEFFREY

BISHOP

Jeffrey Bishop (b. 1949) incorporates a diversity of artistic practices in his works. Through his combinations of digital and traditional mediums, he investigates both the autonomy of abstraction and the role of painting within the rapidly progressing real, of technology. His works often integrate elements with black and white rippled patterns that morph into bulbous forms, reminiscent of the characteristics present in optical art in their vibration and overall visual effects. Combined with other geometric and organic, liquid-like forms, Bishop's works embody the qualities found in music, specifically the rhythm. improvisation and energy of jazz. The artist draws his inspiration from a variety of subjects - from physics, cosmology and architecture, to poetics and technology - to produce abstract works infused with an unsettling yet fervent energy through a collision of forms, colors and textures.

 

Based in Brooklyn, NY, Jeffrey Bishop has exhibited his works in galleries and museums locally and abroad including the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Seattle Art Museum, and the Institute of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles), amongst others. He was also the recipient of the Betty Bowen Memorial Award from the Seattle Art Museum along with awards from the Art Matters Foundation and the Seattle Arts Commission.
