PLEASE join me for the OPENING RECEPTION of “Abstract Illustration by Jemal Diamond” Phantom Galleries at The Pierce Apts. curated by Vivian Giourousis. Friday, November 3, 2017. See teaser video.
Phantom Galleries is pleased to present a special collection of limited-edition prints by abstract artist Jemal Diamond. The collection, created solely on the Apple iPad, explores at the cross-section of digital design and traditional mark making to create new, contradictory, layered, abstracted figures and landscapes. A graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Jemal takes a playful, improvisational approach that aims to keep the viewer’s joyful engagement while introducing a wide-range of darker graphic indicators and visual cues.
For this exclusive collection, each limited-edition fine art print, hand-signed by Jemal, is beautifully mounted in a black satin wood frame, printed on Pura Fine Art velvet paper, 4-ply conservation rag mat, and acrylic non-glare glazing.
