Excelsior: New Oils by Jeff Wigman

Excelsior: New Oils by Jeff Wigman

Jeff Wigman of Troy, NY, presents new oil paintings in his exhibition Excelsior. He states that painting is “…a way to get past words. In the open space of the page, metaphors pop up like sudden jokes, fully formed and emblematic. Imagination here isn’t about escape or fancy; it’s a matter of engaging the mind’s eye as the primary interpretive tool. I use oil paints, often making my own. It’s mesmerizing stuff that takes on endless qualities. It mixes so easily with the eye, ready to become something, making suggestions as if it has its own desires. Looking closely into it shows something of the mystery of substance and representation altogether, of how the material world conspires with perception, mind, and knowledge to make up our experience.”
