Jeffrey Mongrain: SculptureFebruary 3 - April 5, 2007 Free Admission
In his freestanding and site referential works, Jeffrey Mongrain takes the viewer on a journey into the world of experience and meaning on several concurrent levels. Physically and visually, Mongrain’s forms are simple, elegant, and even austere, drawing upon the humble elements of the tangible world with which we are entirely familiar and comfortable. The form is revealed with grace and virtuosity. At the same time, each of these simple forms encase mysteries; these are the secrets of association, reference, memory, and science that inhabit Mongrain’s world. Secrets and revelations co-exist in these works, and it is the powerful tension that vibrates between worlds of site and symbol, and of the tangible and ineffable, that keeps Jeffrey Mongrain’s work alive and evolving.
