The work of Jim Houser embodies a folkloric quality as the self-taught artist tells tales of his life experiences, using both graphic elements and symbols, and the literal word. His signature color palette, the shades of sky blue, turquoise, baby blue, reds and burgundy, coupled with canvases created from found objects give an almost naivete aspect to the work which can only be described as deceptively simple. Tomorrow night, the Philadelphia based artist continues his visual story telling with "Night Got Quiet - Not Quite Light” at Fecal Face Gallery. Houser's first solo with FFDG will feature 15 new mixed media paintings and site-specific installation works. Take a peek at a few preview images via the gallery, but be sure to view the exhibit in person if you're in the San Francisco area.
