Jim Houser solo show at Jonathan Levine Gallery.

I had a chance to stop by Jim Housers' current solo show at Jonathan Levine Gallery today and was blown away by his newest work. I have always been a fan of Housers' work since he started designing boards for Toy Machine years ago. Housers' color palette has a touch of mid-century to it with its aqua blues and true reds. His unique visual language has a quiet nature to it but is also slightly whimsical.

This show also incorporates an installation complete with music that he created himself which adds a new dimension to his work. A few of the pieces use rope as the main elements or as frames which further tells his story and ties in with colors from his consistent palette.

You can see more of his work here and here.
