Jimi Gleason, Detail, JJK/Brooklyn, 2022, silver deposit and acrylic on canvas, 30” x 24”

Born in Newport Beach, CA, Gleason received his BA from UC Berkeley in 1985. He studied printmaking at the San Francisco Art Institute before relocating to New York City, where he worked as a photo assistant and photo technician. Returning to California, Gleason was employed in the studio of Ed Moses for five years. Combining the disparate technical and compositional skills developed during his exposure to printmaking, photography and mixed-media painting, Gleason is now the subject of considerable curatorial and critical applause. 

His work has been exhibited in significant public institutions, including: the Hammer Museum, Frederick R. Weisman Foundation, the Long Beach Museum of Art, the Seattle Art Museum, and the Tucson Museum of Art. The artist’s paintings are actively collected by a growing number of major public and private collections around the world. 

On view: October 15,  2022 – December 3, 2022
