Jed Foronda Day Dreams

January 23, 2015 – February 28, 2015 Gracie R. Cavnar Gallery

Day Dreams is derived from momentary observations, cultural elements and the artist’s memories. The work focuses on Jed Foronda’s 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, he works subjectively and intuitively from his own experiences towards more generalized, objective, and shared histories.
