Jon P. Geiger | Barometer
January 11th - February 11th
Interface Gallery is pleased to announce Barometer, Jon P. Geiger’s first solo show with the gallery. For this exhibition, Geiger continues his interest in the natural and mediated landscape through his use of ceramic sculpture and collage. He will debut a new series of circular, wall-based works he calls Hondo Tondos, which incorporate a layering of steel, found images of the Western, American landscape, and magnetized, ceramic components. The name is a reference to the character Hondo from Louis L’Amour’s Western novels, who was made famous by John Wayne. The character’s rugged individualism itself is a construct of American identity in relationship to the landscape. Barometer will also feature two larger-scaled floor pieces that explore aspects of an imagined landscape.
