Ahhh - the works of Jeremy Mayne thrill me. I love, love, love the layering - the multiple elements that work together to create an always moving eye, and how that tickles my soul. I love that I don’t know exactly what he is saying, visually, but I don’t feel that I need to know. I can make up my own story by way of my own associations with the cryptic lines, barely legible words, hints of objects, incredibly interesting lines that go… somewhere, and nowhere.
Being a beginner monoprint artist myself, and LOVING the tactile elements of printmaking, Jeremy’s work stands at a pinnacle of technical ability, but also has enough heart in it that it just thrills me to look at each piece. I’d have great difficulty picking a favourite.
(His work is brand new to the gallery, and is still in process of being framed. Will be up in the next couple weeks… and you’ll hear about it when it is on display! If you REALLY want a preview, we can pull some of the pieces out of the drawers for you!)
