Jim Houser

Mrz 10, 2012

Los Angeles

In Houser’s new exhibition, ‘As Quiet As It’s Kept’ the artist returns to Los Angeles with an insightful array of works ranging from canvas paintings, mixed media compositions and installations. Houser continues his perpetual examination of self-exploration and the meditative peace found in quietness compared to the joys of sound.

Through each whimsical character and play of words, the artist creates a visual dialog filled with personal and emotional tension. Inspired by his son, Houser also explores the impact of fatherhood and the new responsibilities faced. Within this body of work, the artist beautifully weaves the idea of our nature to protect and the experience of witnessing growth of the ones we love.

Jim Houser, a self-taught artist, helped create Philadelphia’s Space 1026 gallery and artist collective. Houser’s paintings are the system by which he actively catalogs the images and noises which command his attention. His installations create a mapping system, cataloguing the contents of his head over the course of a particular period of time.
