ROBERT JACK

(New Haven, Usa, 1971)

Robert Jack , born in New Haven (United States) in 1971 , lives and works in New York.
In 1994, he graduated in Architecture and Landscape Sciences.
The work of Robert Jack is a silent process , a development osmotic and homeopathic . Each surface hides a symbiotic network in which each element is linked to the following to form an inconsistency chain of colors. Many of his drawings mimic the way nature operates through it’s tiny mechanisms.
The artist plays the continuous flow of the imperceptible in it’s process of evolution and change. Behind the discontinuity surface of his canvases , the world repeats itself, duplicates and replicates again. In the intimate space of a layer of paper Robert Jack combines signals , vibrations are impossible to identify without an extraordinary level of attention.
Every aspect of life becomes interconnected. His work builds speeches monochrome based on a set of blanks, a lexicon of interludes and transitions that can cause vertigo pure.
In 2011 he participated in the ” The Road to Contemporary Art” in Rome where he has a job where investigates and plays through the use of paint , textures and shapes microbiological taken from small forms of life (bacteria, algae , viruses) which inspired to create representations minimal and delicate , very similar to what you can see at a microscope slide. The title, The Lower Tiers, in fact, the term used in biology to represent and describe the tiny organisms and cellular life forms that make up the invisible layer of all living things, which the artist plays in the process of evolution and of change. The works of Robert Jack are characterized by the use of materials such as casein on wood , graphite and gouache on paper, but what emerges strongly from his works is the skillful use of color to create surfaces capable of detecting a symbiotic network of elements in which each is linked to the next to form an inconsistency chain of colors in the intimate space of a layer of paper.
Among the shows that have marked the last years of the exhibition of the American artist in Europe, the United States and Japan.
