FalseFront is pleased to present Implied Structures, the first solo exhibition of paintings by Jason Vance Dickason.

Implied Structures consists of recent work that continues Dickason's survey into oil painting utilizing the fundamental ideas of line and shape, contrast, and the physical manipulation of the medium on surface. Characterized by a tension between the formal structure contained within composition and the process that creates them, opaque and transparent layers of paint are applied and with time, they reveal more optically complex structures. Meaning and form are transmitted and transfixed, solely presenting the viewer a contemplation of paint and surface.

Implied Structures |Jason Vance Dickason
June 21 - July 14, 2013
Opening Reception | June 21 | 7 -10 PM
FalseFront | 4518 NE 32nd Avenue Portland, OR 97211
