Garvey|Simon presents J Ivcevich: Trail of Mystics in collaboration with Creative Tech Week

Garvey|Simon is pleased to present J Ivcevich: Trail of Mystics, an immersive, multimedia exhibition showcasing the artist’s most recent paintings, sculptures, ceramics and sound design. Trail of Mystics reaches across temporal, cultural, and technological boundaries to create an experience of timelessness and quietude. By converging these oppositional forces, Ivcevich excavates a space for the present.

Ivcevich points to the artifacts of global urban environments as the inspiration for Trail of Mystics. The painting, Mosaic Diptych, 2018, (pictured above) encapsulates his interest in time and meditation. Drawing from images of tattered street advertisements whose strata peek through one another, Ivcevich begins by manipulating his canvas’ surface with tie-dye and silkscreen techniques. The found imagery taken from the shredded advertisements is then put through a process of layering and compositional reduction, mimicking the accumulation of the source material and creating a pictorial historical document. The reductive quality of Ivcevich’s patterning lends a tranquility to the paintings. The work is at once old and new, chaotic and meditative.

Exhibition closes on June 9th.
