About Jim Verburg

  • Since his departure from photography to a practice firmly rooted in material exploration, Verburg’s work has continued to draw critical acclaim. Perpetually inspired by the fleeting and subtle effects of light, the artist employs simple materials (paint, ink, pow-dered graphite) and a myriad of techniques to render the intangible visible. One such technique, derived from print-making, involves the deliberate misuse of the ‘off-roll’: relieving the roller of excess ink on a separate surface before transferring it to a block or plate. By applying the roller directly to an intended surface, Verburg literally ‘unravels’ the impressions gathered in the ink through the act of rolling. The results are surprisingly diverse ranging from fully saturated fields of pigment to cascading tonal gradients to subtle geometric shapes that appear to simultaneously expand and contract. With a palette that is unapologetically monochromatic and using the tools of production to play with perception, the artist presents a series of new tableaus that are atmospheric, seductive and disarmingly serene.
