Turkish Gold: New work by Jourdon Gullett

“Turkish Gold" New work by Jourdon Gullett
September 8th - October 14th, 2012
Opening Reception: Saturday September 8th 4pm-10pm 
Beer tasting 6-8pm with Brenner Brewery

Chicago based artist Jourdon Gullett  works with layered materials, including wood, wallpaper and other found paper materials. His work has recently been exhibited at Jennifer Norback Gallery, Chicago Urban Art Society, Johalla Projects, and The Believe Inn. Currently he works with ASM, and CPAG doing public art in Chicago and full time/illustrations with a Brewery, Solemn Oath Brewery. Gullett is also collaborating with Jesse Neuhaus, launching Bluetown Skateboards.

Gullett’s work is heavily influenced by his surroundings. A recent trip to Instanbul resulted in hundreds of photos to use as fodder for his upcoming show at Sky High Gallery. Combinations of found and new materials are used to create organic hand cut shapes out of plywood. Using the photos from the trip he cropped, pasted, and layered detailed montages of people, buildings, patterns and other Turkish goods.
