Tag: Night Got Quiet Not Quite Light

Jim Houser's paintings for his upcoming show “Night Got Quiet — Not Quite Light,” opening July 11 at FFDG in San Francisco, illustrate small, personal vignettes. The Philadelphia-based artist's works combine a multitude of influences that give them a folkloric, antiquated feel. The text Houser frequently uses recalls the hand-painted signs of past decades; his patchwork-like compositions layer colors like the different fabrics in a quilt. It's as if his work yearns for the hand-made softness and imperfection that has largely been lost in a world of ultra-modern, computerized design.
