Untitled, 2013
Oil and acrylic on canvas
91.44 cm x 91.4 cm (36 in x 36 in)

Jack Gibbons applies his propensity for three-dimensional thinking to this new body of paintings. Seen as both chaotic and precise, textured layers of under-painting and topical rich color mark these conceptual works.

Gibbons is an alumnus of Philadelphia Academy of the Fine Arts in sculpture. His creative work ranges from sculpture, painting, to photography.

Currently, he is a fabricator and installation technician at Johnson Atelier in Hamilton New Jersey, the site of Grounds for Sculpture and The Sculpture Foundation, Inc. He has collaborated with creative partners and foundries to combine new technology with old-world craftsmanship. Projects involve active modeling, enlarging, mold and pattern making, metal working, and finishing with both paint and patina. Sculpture conservation, restoration, art moving and installations round out his extensive experience at the Atelier.
