Harmonious Suspension: The Art of Jeffrey Thelin
Exhibit Dates: 11/5/14 - 1/30/15
Opening: 11/5/14 at 6:30 pm

I consider myself to be a "Mobile Artist," meaning I do all of my artwork on my iPhone. I always start with an image I have taken, using my iPhone. I then edit, transform, and add to the image until it reaches completion. The entire process is incredibly inspiring; what many people think is only possible on a computer, I can do with a device that fits in my pocket. I love the mobility because my art never has to stop. I don’t have to wait to add this or that until I get home, I can work while I am waiting in line, or I'm on the bus: my art is always right on the edge of my fingertips.

The images used in my exhibition represent my current style and aspirations in this field of art. I'm exploring the idea of visually induced peace and harmony. I believe that if people tried to view art the way they hear music, they would have a more enjoyable experience. Most people don’t ask what Beethoven's 9th Symphony means after they hear it; they simply appreciate pieces of its structure, such as its melody, rhythm, and chords.

 Art is full of the same elements. I encourage you to view my pieces as a visual experience, and try to find elements of harmony, emotion, rhythm, and balance.
