Jeff Moriber Invites You to LOOK!
Jeff Moriber has pursued painting and printmaking his entire life. An award winning graphic designer, fine artist and printmaker, Moriber’s paintings and linoleum block print work tell tales of emotions through a crisp cutting technique, saturated inking and a rich color pallet.
Jeff Moriber’s latest exhibit simply titledLOOK!, opens in the Oresman Gallery January 3 and will be on display until January 31. The exhibit is available for viewing during normal library hours. Additionally, there will be a reception for Mr. Moriber on Monday evening, January 6, from 7:00pm to 8:30pm and everyone is welcome. The exhibit and reception are free.
Moriber’s exhibit reflects his perspective on the interaction of the psychic inner world and physical outer world around us; “For everything I see”, said Moriber, “I imagine what else is there”. This becomes the story behind each of his works. Jeff Morber believes that you can’t look forward without looking back. According to Moriber, “looking forwardinherently suggests searching for something; perhaps familiar, new, extraordinary; or perhaps to clarify or inform. Any and all of these things are related directly to what you already know, expect, anticipate, or have put into a particular viewing context. At any present moment, in any place, at any time of day or night; a smell, a sound, a sight, or a feeling can trigger one of thousands of stored connections to the present moment. These are the moments that inform my work”.
Moriber’s imagesdepict the actual and imagined content, gestures and colors of a particular feeling he has about the circumstances and history of the moment. The light, shadows, imaginings and circumstance invite the viewer’s own imagination to join the conversation.
