EASILY FORGETTABLE with Jon Izen

Easily Forgettable

EASILY FORGETTABLE
Jon Izen Solo Exhibition

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, April 17, 2009 from 6-9pm

EXHIBIT RUNS: April 16 – 27, 2009

Easily Forgettable showcases over one thousand miniature portraits of Jon Izen’s expressive, not quite cartoony characters. Rendered on pocket-sized pieces of wood, the portraits are simple, anonymous, imposing in their volume, yet fantastic in their own understated individuality.

Seeking to make the ordinary extraordinary, the overwhelming presence of Izen’s sea of characters compels the viewer to take notice. Using an economy of line and colour to create a connection with the viewer, Izen purposefully neglects the visual cues ordinarily used for expression in illustration and animation. Finding inspiration within our common population, Izen’s gentle characters evoke equal doses of pathos, desperation, hope and humour.
