About The Event

Hi i’m Jack Avila (JVAB) Welcome to my solo show, where I invite you to experience the intricate interplay of paint, collage, and assemblage in my art. Through these diverse mediums, I explore the rich tapestry of human experience, weaving together fragments of memory, emotion, and imagination.In each piece, layers of paint dance across the canvas, capturing the essence of moments both fleeting and profound. Through the tactile process of collage, I incorporate found objects, ephemera, and personal mementos, infusing each composition with a sense of history and narrative depth. Assemblage breathes life into the unexpected, as disparate elements come together to form new meanings and associations, sparking connections between the past and present.Themes of nostalgia, transformation, and the resilience of the human spirit echo throughout my work, inviting viewers to embark on a journey of exploration and introspection. By embracing the fluidity of paint, the texture of collage, and the juxtaposition of assemblage, I seek to evoke a visceral response, stirring the senses and stirring the soul.As you immerse yourself in this collection, I encourage you to embrace the beauty of imperfection, and abstraction to celebrate the magic of spontaneity, and to discover the hidden stories waiting to be uncovered within each layer of paint, collage, and assemblage. This is more than just art – it's a testament to the power of creativity to transcend boundaries, spark connection, and illuminate the human experience.
