JAMES COBB: TOOKY JELLY (March 6th - April 5th, 2015)
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Tooky Jelly is a small collection of James Cobb’s recent work, the continuation of a long-term attempt to pursue intuitive image making as a reflection and distillation of thinking, experiences and influences. The exhibit features work created digitally and printed on metal—labor intensive, though untouched by human hands save for the firm grip on a mouse. The series was created during a two-year period between early 2013 and early 2015.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
James Cobb has lived and worked in San Antonio for over thirty years. A D-I-Y practitioner, Cobb first became interested in art through the Mail Art movement, eventually transitioning into oil painting, digital image creation and musical forays. Recent group shows include Go West 1, the First Bilateral Contemporary Art Exhibit Between France and Texas, held at UNESCO’S Hall Ségur in Paris and the William Tower Gallery, Houston; and Psychedelic, Optical and Visionary Art Since the 1960s at the San Antonio Museum of Art. One-person exhibitions include Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, San Antonio; Amersfoort, The Netherlands; Cardiff, Wales; and Osaka, Japan. He currently divides his time between working with computer-aided graphics and painting. Later this year, Cobb will be working on a collaborative installation with UK artist Andre Stitt at Flight Gallery in San Antonio.
