The New Mythological Worlds of Jesse Jacobi

by Andy SmithPosted on

Jesse Jacobi’s expansive, seemingly ancient worlds reflect on the cycles of life and nature in a new show at Arch Enemy Arts. “From The Eternal Green Mouth” collects new acrylic paintings from the Michigan artist, who was last featured on here. His new show opens on July 12 at the Philadelphia venue. The gallery says these works “operate in broad, open-ended symbolism as opposed to a straight narrative, to be looked at from different angles, dependent on the viewer—psychologically, emotionally, mythologically, even ecologically.”

“The fundamental principle behind this group of paintings is the very simple idea that light and darkness define each other – a concept as old as human awareness,” Jacobi says. “I hope this group of paintings reflects these feelings that we all know, which are deeply embedded in all of us.”
