Dif•fu•sion…the process whereby particles of liquids, gases, or solids intermingle as the result of their spontaneous movement; the act of spreading out…thermal agitation…reflection of light by a rough reflecting surface…the spread of cultural elements…soft-focus effect…excessive talk or writing James Verbicky’s new series “Diffusion” represents all of these elements. A self-taught artist… James has no fear…always experimenting and pushing boundaries…the most amazing results into unchartered territory! Verbicky’s work is spontaneous…risk-taking…connected to nature…organic discoveries…evolved…transcending moments of contemporary life…all speak to the art that is James Verbicky! “My latest series, the media paintings, bridge the gap between sculpture and painting by binding fragments of vintage media to one another, double-exposing language and image and melting them in upon themselves. By unearthing and layering the remnants of dozens of decades of disparate generations, the media paintings transcend simple words and images and become objects containing the essence of human culture.” – James Verbicky James Verbicky’s work will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize.
