new work at artdc.com

There’s a new collector’s pick up at artdc.com. If you’re an art collector or have an interest in becoming one, This new painting is a wonderful way to start.  Matt Sesow is in it to stay, and he’s an incredible artist moving forward at a fast pace.   He produces a great deal of work.  He paints so much, that we heard he had to remove his dishwasher so he could have more storage room for art!!!

artdc.com has started a new program which will select individual works of art for collectors to buy. The art is top notch, and I hope to see these selected artists do amazing things though out their careers. Stop by artdc.com to read more about this project. The first artist selected is Nils Henrik Sundqvist the founder of Art Outlet.

Great talk at Jammin Java

I had a great talk at Jammin Java in Fairfax for the Arts Council of Fairfax County. We discussed artdc.org, our presence on the net, features and opportunities for the DC metro arts community. Around 100 people showed up and we sold 5 artdc.org t-shirts, so I was quite pleased to find a great number of people interested in what we’re doing.

Things are moving right along. artdc.org is growing, and I’m getting the feeling that great things will come to our city. Recently I had the opportunity to view a work by Richard Serra, and I was knocked out. In this world there are some amazing artists, but you know that. What inspiration. It makes me want to spend some time learning about sculpture and installation art. Visit artdc.org and post about your favorite artists and why you like them. I’d love to learn about your inspiration.

During the day, I’m still working at Georgetown, this time I’m working as a Technician for a Med-School Microbiology class. This has been quite an experience working in large numbers like this. It reminds me of my days out of college working in a production lab. It’s a different world from research, but still a great feeling to produce an experiment that works.

In the mean time, check out the progress at dcbio.org, the community is growing there…

Jesse Cohen in 6 Man Show

On June 3rd, I’m involved in a show entitled “Six Man Show.” This event is curated by Alison Christ, and will contain the words of 6 DC area artists. Come out and see some new work that hasn’t been shown publicly. Just think 2 shows, back to back. Aromatic, then new work at 6 Man!

Location: 507 South 23rd St. Arlington, VA

Find show details here.

Edit: This show was a great success. Many people came out on a rainy day to see some really strong work. Once again, Alison proves that a one day show is a strong possibility or opportunity for artists to get some well deserved attention! We all look forward to seeing the next show that she plans. Check back future show plans.

Artist’s Statement

In the field of molecular biology we work with systems and materials that are understood but not seen. Our experiments and processes are viewed secondhand through results of chemical interactions left on a plate or a photographic image of a gel marked by a passing reaction. Our work seems to exist at an odd intersection between the abstract and the concrete.

My work is representative of that idea. If you draw close to any object, soon it begins to take on abstract qualities. For example, we are used to seeing still-life images at a certain distance; arm’s length or more. Yet, once you enter into a flower’s stamen for a look around, you’ve arrived at Terra Incognita where everything is fresh and unknown.

In these images I’ve moved in close for a different view, focusing sharply on human curves or a flower’s organs. This sets the image clearly in the real world with an abstract composition, yet lets the fields dissolve into the sensuous contrasting forms that are unnoticed periphery in everything we see.

artdc.org Founder’s Statement

In the art scene, new artists are often unintentionally hidden from the public. Artists must create and allow for their own discovery through active networking.

artdc.org’s goal is to fill this gap in the Washington, DC art scene by providing an environment for emerging and established artists to communicate with each other, with galleries and with collectors. artdc.org was created to allow us to push our art scene and our own development through our expanded communication.
