17 June – 31 July

Rockland, Maine:  Black Hole presents If/Then.  The exhibition will run until 31 July 2017, and showcases the work of Tom Jessen, from Temple, Maine.  

In his work, Jessen explores form, depth and the nature of the plane, through seemingly simple compositions which engage the audience through their treatment of surface, balance and materiality.  If/Then represents a departure of sorts from the artist’s earlier work, as he introduces color, in so doing adding an extra sensory experience and point of contrast.  

Alongside Collin Burns’ Maine Homage (which runs concurrently in the gallery), Jessen’s works offer a stark yet sensitive counterpoint, at once contrasting and complimenting the illustrative, narrative pieces they hang beside.
