This showcase features pieces representative of the artist's last nine years in Sacramento and are a focus on the different cities from his past and present.  They also examine the human elements that bind us all, the world over...

Jeffrey studied painting at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, receiving a B.A. in 1993.  Hi earliest influences include Matisse, Cezanne, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Picasso and Stuart Davis.  He credits these influences in being instrumental in defining his style.

As a child, Jeffrey moved from Los Angeles to Tokyo and to London.  He completed 3 years of schooling in Paris before moving to New York.  After 9 years in New York and 9 years in New Mexico, Jeffrey moved to Sacramento, California in 2003.

Jeffrey is especially interested in movement and the distortion of movement.  "Movement seems more real to me when it is the suggestion of movement in the lift of a heel, the turn of the head, the wind in the trees, or a bicycle passing by.  Often I will flatten perspective to gain contrast or depth, straying outside the parameter of real or reality."

Jeffrey speaks with Charles Johnson on his show at the Temporary Contemporary in this two-part podcast:
Interview - Part One
Interview - Part Two

Additional artists featured include Cherie Hacker, Susan Ballenger, Christine Finnie, Linda Grebmeier, Laurie Hopkins, Laureen Landau (from the estate of), Varya McMillan, Jane Mikacich, Lisa Neal and Erin Wapple.
