The SCAD Museum of Art presents "Chaos Pacific," a series of monotypes created by internationally renowned artist Jedd Novatt. Unique marks left on each print, such as transparent blocks of color, thin lines and dark, bold shapes formed by printmaking rollers, reveal the evolution of each work's creation and, together, establish a complete narrative.
This exhibition displays the distinct construction process Novatt uses for his monumental sculptures, and complements "Chaos Concepción," a permanent installation that will be unveiled at 5:30 p.m., Friday, April 28, 2017, in the SCAD Museum of Art Alex Townsend Memorial Courtyard.
Novatt's work has been installed in public spaces on the grounds of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, Spain, and at the Pérez Art Museum in Miami, Florida, among other museums in Europe, Asia and the U.S. His work is also included in public and private collections worldwide.
After graduating from Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York, in 1980, Novatt spent a year studying and working in France at the former Lacoste School of the Arts — now SCAD Lacoste — before moving to New York City. Since 2002, Novatt has lived in Europe, and he divides his time between studios in Paris and the Luberon Valley, France, and in the Basque Country of Spain.
The exhibition is free for all museum members, as well as SCAD students, faculty and staff with a valid SCAD Card. Open to the public with the cost of museum admission.
