The Debriti Show! (First Exhibition)

Debriti is 100% organic, recycled and biodegradable chipboard. It is laser cut into the standard twenty-four letter Latin alphabet and comes in many typefaces, colors and qualities. The dictionary will in time define Debriti; as a compound word composed from the words (debris + graffiti). Debriti is often 3D letters, materials or fragments of texts that have been purposely dropped, thrown or placed on the ground often in a public space to call attention to itself or for various other reasons including political, personal or artistic declarations. Word games, visual patterns, typesetting and a myriad of other practices can be created using Debriti.    jonmarc edwards, 2016

GLITCH
   A selection of 18 photographic images
printed on aluminum.

December 1 – January 13, 2018
Opening Saturday December 2nd, 4 -7 pm
Open Sunday December 3rd, 1 - 4pm
    
These photos capture the moment of data breakdown, the instant the information becomes fragmented, a metaphor for our post-truth age where science, facts and reality are manipulated and purposely distorted to create confusion, doubt and fake news.  These abstractions represent a new narrative, one equally if not more powerful than the original.

The GLITCH photos are the result of transmission failure rather than any purposeful distortion; using magnets or software. Most of the images were gathered via network broadcasts, much of the subject matter is news, entertainment, weather and sports, our daily bread. I decided to forego the entertainment / celebrity portion of the images and concentrate on the formal qualities of the image; pattern, color and identity… or lack thereof.

This selection of eighteen images comes from a source material of almost 400 images. I hope you feel as compelled as I do by these images, the abstract nuisance and data breakdown, a metaphor for our current immersive state of corruption and instability.

Early Nineties Painting

During the month of February, 2018

Upon my arrival in LA in 1990 I was committed to creating a visual form of writing, a legible Character (Ideogram) one that at first glance is abstract but upon closer consideration, decipherable. A journey and study of pictorial writing / painting (I see these two endeavors as inseparably linked) began. These early experimentations would eventually be known as Monosyble or Merge; an approach to painting that transforms composed writing into concise, legible pictographic landscapes. The early nineties / Monosyble work included in this exhibition are small to medium size paintings revealing the patience and methodical approach to written and pictorial content and structure.

Artist JonMarc Edwards' invites you to FLUTTER, an extraordinary event at the SEARCH + RESQ Gallery located near the Brewery in downtown Los Angeles. FLUTTER is an immersive installation, where participants are spellbound to intermittent flurries of text, meaning and chaos. FLUTTER is an experience that connects both the visually stunning with the metaphorically inspiring. Earthy, humorous and wise, the conceptual installation visually asserts that language is an essential element; the fifth element, like air, water, fire and wind (and as ubiquitous.) FLUTTER empowers participants to interact and make sense of the linguistic fabric that is all-around us; concrete, profuse, disposable - unique!
