Mercer University Art Department presents Brendan Jamison: GLUE
Art Department, Mercer University
Mercer University’s Art Department will host Irish artist Brendon Jamison for a lecture about his work at 6 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 31, in the lecture hall at the School of Engineering located on Mercer’s Macon campus. Jamison, who is also a curator, will present an exhibit of contemporary collage, titled GLUE, in Mercer’s Plunkett Gallery. He will give a gallery talk about the exhibit when it opens on Monday, Feb. 3, at 10 a.m. The exhibit will continue through Feb. 28. Admission to the exhibit and both events is free and open to the public.
“Brendan's work is significant in its use of non-traditional materials, extensive research on his topics, and subtle humor,” said Craig Coleman, associate professor of art at Mercer. “Two of his most recent projects have enjoyed significant media coverage: a three-year research project on Teufelsberg Field Station Berlin, the Cold War listening station in the Grunewald forest; and Sugar Metropolis, a collaborative project with the public displayed at the Royal Ulster Academy.”
In 2010, Jamison was commissioned by Native Land & Grosvenor to build sugar cube scale models of Tate Modern and NEO Bankside for the London Festival of Architecture. His carved sugar cube sculptures have been sold at Sotheby's (Bond Street, London) in an exhibition of contemporary art curated by Janice Blackburn. The London highlight of 2012 was a carved sugar sculpture of Number 10 exhibited inside 10 Downing Street, on display since February behind the real front door. In September 2012, Jamison was elected as a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, and two months later elected to the Royal Ulster Academy of Arts. He has received seven awards from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, and is represented in Ireland by Hillsboro Fine Art, Dublin. Jamison is represented in the U.K. by Four Square Fine Arts in England and the Golden Thread Gallery and Dickon Hall Gallery in Belfast.
