Press release

The Fairfield Arts Center is excited to present the mind-blowing work of Connecticut-based artist Jonathan Waters in his exhibition Jonathan Waters: Recent Sculpture & Works on Paper, opening on July 7 from 6—8 p.m. and running through Sept. 4, 2011 in the Ellen Hyde Phillips Gallery.

Waters, who received his BFA from Windham College and MFA from Yale has exhibited extensively throughout New York and Eastern Connecticut. Influenced by Alexander Calder, Mark di Suvero and Richard Serra, with whom he worked, Waters seeks balance in his art that allows the viewer to concentrate on pure line and shape without compositional distractions. He focuses on “drawing in space” and transforms two-dimensional lines and shapes into three-dimensional objects; his goal is to actively engage his audience with his method of assembly using geometric and organic contours to attain an overall sense of harmony amidst the duality created by his effective use of contrast.
