"The idea comes from walking around my neighborhood and seeing these small vigil spots on the sidewalk at the location of something bad happening. Car wreck, shooting, a sick kid etc. The ones with the stuffed animals always crush me. There's usually not an explanation of any sort, you are just left to wonder what happened. I think it's a sign of where we are, how life is right now. Seems like I notice them more and more. They are sad and they are beautiful." - Jim Houser


ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Jim Houser's signature style of visual poetry and personal iconography, the artist extends his practice of self-examination to include the topic of art making itself. Works serve to consider Houser’s relationship to the artwork he creates, the compulsion to create it and how his lifestyle has been formed, consequently. Houser’s collages become visual poems through which he cathartically communicates his most private thoughts and emotions with surprising candor. By cataloging his experiences and feelings through a unique pictorial language, the artist creates his own brand of curative iconography. Houser’s aesthetic often mixes stylized figures, hand-drawn typography and geometric shapes, creating quilt-like collages in a cohesive color palette.

Houser layers acrylic on wood, fabric and found objects, blurring the lines between collage and sculpture. Once combined, it becomes clear that all of his works are associative and directly related. This deceptively dimensional quality is further highlighted when the pieces are assembled into one of the artist’s elaborate installations, adding to the complexity of each individual piece by emphasizing a greater inter-connectivity to the body of work as a whole.Houser’s collages, paintings and installations have been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the United States, Europe, Australia and Brazil. His work is included in the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and he Philadelphia Academy of Fine Art.
