Jana Swec and Jared Theis

dberman gallery
Closing September 5, 2009

 Jana Swec finds inspiration in nature. The lines of her pen and ink drawings undulate across the paper, creating intricate, abstracted forms of merging trees, root structures, and elephants' trunks and legs.

Jared Theis combines his mastery of finely detailed ceramics and his passion for music to create the body of work /Measures/. These slabs of clay are delicately etched, resulting in relief-like qualities that rhythmically push and pull into the surfaces.

New American Talent

The twenty-fourth in a series of annual juried exhibitions, New American Talent features the work of emerging artists working in a variety of mediums. This year’s New American Talent exhibits the work of 26 artists from the United States—12 of whom currently live and work in Texas.
