Awakening the senses and exciting vision are the attributes of the upcoming art exhibit, Imagine That at Les Beaux Arts Gallery.

Jeff Moriber’s paintings and prints will be displayed Sunday, May 5, through Wednesday, June 19.

An award winning graphic designer, Mr. Moriber is a fine art artist and printmaker whose paintings and linoleum block print work tell tales of emotions through a “crisp cutting technique, saturated inking and a rich pallet” according to the gallery.

His subjects are boldly painted with a strong sense of chiaroscuro. They push forward and fill up the space creating a strong sense of presence. His portraits are expressive and ambiguous, inviting the viewer to make up his or her own story about the painting.

In his artist statement, Mr. Moriber wrote, “You can’t look forward without looking back. I often see before me what is familiar. I also see what is unfamiliar, what I expected and what I hadn’t expected. My personal storehouse of memories encompasses all I’ve experienced and informs me, in my own particular context, what it is I’m seeing. My images depict what I believe is there and unseen, subtle or overt at that particular moment. The content, gestures and colors reflect my feeling and thought about the circumstances and history of that moment. I invite the viewer’s own imagination to join the conversation.”

Mr. Moriber is a graduate of Pratt Institute, Brooklyn and was creative director for Hill and Knowlton and Fleishman Hillard in New York. He resides and has a studio in Westchester, N.Y.
