“SOUGHT”

Solo Exhibition : Jesse Beamesderfer

October 2, 2009 through October 31, 2009

Opening Reception

Friday, October 2, 2009 6-9pm

Amberella Gallery is pleased to present to you new work by Jesse Beamesderfer. A few months after a debut near sold-out show, Beamesderfer returns with “SOUGHT”, a show focusing on Obsession, Compulsion, and Collection. Focused this time on exploiting the warping of reality through extensive fascination with a singular ideal or subject, the series reflects a pop art graphicness without room for peripheral senses.

Jesse Beamesderfer

Jesse Beamesderfer’s heart and soul lies somewhere on the outskirts

of this reality and a few inches a plane away. It is from that space

that he can observe reality and safely make art without leaving a

footprint capable of interrupting the flow of natural existence. His

art, in return, reflects a reality that is usually only glimpsed for a

few seconds, made true in that moment, and then turned away from as

its original truth returns. Although reinventing work regularly, his

recent series depicts pieces of The Fashion Industry, a culture

Beamesderfer truly lives outside of, with a narrow but true sense of

its reality.

Previously, Beamesderfer has worked on pieces reflecting religion as

propaganda, strange noises as shamanism, and the feeling of complete

loss of hope as strength. His current projects include writing an

Artist’s Bio. Future plans include themes such as the internet as a

blueprint for the future, language as a form of communication, and the

state of Louisiana as a can of beets.

Beamesderfer grew up in south eastern Pennsylvania where he spent

most of the time watching 90’s television, walking on back roads until

getting lost and hitchhiking home, and constantly re-designing the

attic. He graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in

2005 with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts. In 2007 he moved to Philadelphia

where he resides today. You can find him selling high-end craft beer

in Northern Liberties or in his studio in Kensington trying to find

his pen.

The Outlook Beamesderfer has in the creative process perhaps is not

unique, rather a path to defining art or even perception in general.

On the other hand, it could quite possibly be a downfall as life may

become increasingly disconnected through this application. For this

reason, Beamesderfer is looking into Buddhism.
