Opening Reception: Jon Eastman’s “Night from Day: The Noir Collage Series”

10 x 8″ acrylic on board and paper

Jon Eastman is a Bloomfield, Connecticut based artist that focuses on object making.  He is currently working simultaneously on 3 different series— a group of box constructions incorporating found objects and post-consumer materials, a series of wall relief pieces that explore form and color, and collage works of cut up acrylics on paper and board. This piece will be featured at Green Street during the month of August.

Amass with textures, patterns and prints of common objects and everyday materials, Eastman’s compact and jam-packed visual narratives are far more than mere explorations of color and composition.  Enigmatic and poetic experiments layered in paint, his “Noir” collages are gritty, autobiographical artifacts which invite the viewer to decipher and decode their history and meaning.

There will be an opening reception for Eastman’s Night from Day: The Noir Collage Series on Thursday, August 3rd from 5-7p.m. and the show will remain on view through August 29th.  The gallery is located at 51 Green Street, Middletown, CT.  Summer gallery hours are Mon.-Thurs. 9am-5pm and Fri. 9am-3p.m.
