An interview with Jemal Diamond talking about his work in preparation for his upcoming solo exhibit, November 1st through January 31, 2018. At The Pierce Apartments Gallery (first floor), 2 Pierce Ave, San Jose, CA 95110.
A special collection of limited-edition prints will be on display. The collection, created solely on the Apple iPad, explores the cross section of digital design and traditional mark making, utilizing next-generation drawings tools to create contradictory, layered, abstracted figures and landscapes. Jemal uses a playful, improvisational approach that aims to keep the viewer’s joyful engagement while introducing a wide-range of darker graphic indicators and visual cues. All of Jemal's artwork is titled by outside observers. Individual pieces may have several titles depending on how many people have contributed. Each title offered is collected and documented over time. Asking the viewer to title the artwork engages their personal interpretation and activates their imagination. It bridges an intimate connection between the artwork and the spectator. It also allows each person to take ownership of the artwork by giving it a title. The artwork becomes a community entity. You will have the opportunity to title Jemal Diamond's work in person at his upcoming reception and you are always welcomed to title his work online. #TitleMe
