Director's Choice: Jak Kovatch

January 8 through March 4, 2012


Figure, Mixed Media, 6.25 in x 7.5 in
Since 1952, Jak Kovatch has been working on a series of etching and painting exploring his concept of "Image Continuum." His new exhibit at Silvermine will explore this on-going series in multimedia works which will include paintings, sculptures and works on paper created by the artist. About his work, Mr. Kovatch says, "For me, the boundaries between pure drawing and pure painting are difficult to define in any exact terms. When I work, I consider both ways of presenting images, regardless of the medium used. Using both drawing and painting in a single work, I think I achieve the best of two worlds."
