Exhibition of sculptures and drawings by Jean-Pierre Hébert opens new Carl Solway project space
Jean-Pierre Hébert, Sand Installation: Ryo-Anji 2011. Collaborators: David Bothman, Victor diNovi. Mixed media installation, 45 x 45 x 9 inches.
CINCINNATI, OH.- Carl Solway Gallery presents an exhibition at Findlay Street Project Space, a new, independent gallery located in the Carl Solway Gallery building in the West End. The show features the work of Jean-Pierre Hébert, a pioneer in creating art through the use of computer programming. Creating algorithms, sets of step-by-step mathematical calculations, he generates amazingly subtle and intricate drawings in sand, air, water and on paper. A concern with line as a direct expression of the thought process pervades his work. His Findlay Street Project Space exhibition encompasses a sand installation, an air and sound installation and ten drawings related to the two sculptural works.

Originally trained as a civil engineer, he began experimenting with digital art in the 1970s. His transition from engineer to artist developing the underlying technical basis of his work precedes the practices of younger artists with engineering backgrounds such as Alan Rath and Jim Campbell by a generation. Hébert’s early artistic influences ranged from Piet Mondrian and Wassily Kandinsky to Max Bill, François Morellet, Wolfgang Otto Ludwig Schulze, a.k.a WOLS and Agnes Martin. With John Cage, he shares a profound interest in Zen Buddhism.

Jean-Pierre Hébert is the Artist-In-Residence at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of California Santa Barbara, a position he has held since 2003. His many awards include grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation in 2006, the David Bermant Foundation in 2009 and the Lifetime Achievement Award in Digital Art from SIGGRAPH in 2012. The first public exhibition of his digital drawings was held in France in 1989. His work has been included in such groundbreaking exhibitions as “Alien Intelligence”, 2000, at the Kiasma Museum in Helsinki, Finland, “Imaging by Numbers”, 2008, at the Block Museum of Art, Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois; “Digital Pioneers”, 2010, at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; and “Drawing with Code”, 2011, at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, Massachusetts. Other exhibition venues include the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Santa Barbara Museum of Art and the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum. Born in Calais, France, Hébert has resided in Santa Barbara, California since 1985.
