rogue gallery august 2016 exhibits news : Image of Acrophobia, a painting by James DeebI

“Acrophobia,” by James Deeb

This exhibit features Illinois painter James Deeb, Utah printmaker Justin Diggle, and Eugene sculptor Jud Turner. Inspired by German Expressionism, James Deeb’s thickly textured oil paintings provide a dark satirical commentary on everyday life. Modern society’s pervasive use of surveillance is the central theme of the hauntingly stark black and white etchings of Justin Diggle. Jud Turner uses found objects, welded steel, and re-purposed items to create eerily beautiful assemblage sculptures which reflect the exhilarations and anxieties of industrialized society.

Jud Turner

Oregon artist Jud Turner has been working with found or repurposed objects and welded steel for over 20 years. His work has been featured in hundreds of exhibitions and is in public and private collections around the world including Ripley’s Believe it or Not, the Boston Museum of Science, and the University of Oregon. Turner’s sculptures are visually engaging, using symmetry, repetition and intricate detail to balance the darker contemporary themes he explores such as the balance between nature and technology, mortality, the passage of time, and transportation. He resides in Eugene, OR.

James Deeb

James Deeb received an MFA from Western Michigan University in 1994. His paintings are darkly humorous and melancholy. He finds inspiration from artists Philip Guston and James Ensor the philosophical works of Friedrich Nietzsche.
