Jed Foronda, Day Dreams, 2014.

Day Dreams, the latest exhibit from Jed Foronda, will run through February 28th at Grace R. Cavnar Gallery, Lawndale Art Center.

As he explains in his artist statement:

Day Dreams is a site specific installation derived from momentary observations, cultural elements and the artist’s memories. The work focuses on my continued exploration of altering paper mediums, from Art Forums to Playboys, by systematically carving organic abstract patterns into the surface. These carefully excavated forms result in mandala-esque patterns that subvert the objects original content and intention. In this way, the works are subjectively and intuitively derived from my own experiences towards more generalized, objective, and shared histories.

Foronda received his BFA in painting from the University of Houston in 2008. His most notable achievement is becoming the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series 2012 National Winner at Art Basel in Miami. He currently resides and works in his studio in Houston.

ED WILSON Exhibition At Art League Houston Through February 21st

“The content of my work is the beginning. The joy is the process. I love the challenge of making ideas tangible through my chosen medium of metal. Working in the studio is a struggle of will, forcing the material into forms that are expressions of my thoughts and at the same time revealing the innate beauty of the material itself.”Ed Wilson

Ed Wilson was born in Louisiana in 1953, and lives and works in Houston, TX. He received a BFA in sculpture from Louisiana State University in 1981, and an MFA from the University of Houston in 1984.
