Franklin Parrasch Gallery is pleased to announce our third solo exhibition of new works by Joseph Ayers.
Ayers’ work often centers on the visual and conceptual interrelationship between human consciousness and forces of nature. Interactive objects, natural elements, drawing, painting, video, sound, and various combinations of each comprise his illusionistic forms in ways that often question the disparities and similarities between his media and his ostensible subjects. His work explores the ways in which culturally formed expectations affect perceptions.
Ayers’ work has been shown in numerous group exhibitions at venues such as Morgan Lehman Gallery (New York), Robert Miller Gallery (New York), Sikkema Jenkins & Co. (New York), and the Kansas City Jewish Museum (KS). Born and raised in rural Florida, Ayers graduated from the Hunter College MFA program in 2007, and currently resides in Beacon, New York.
