This exhibition brings together two artists whose work reflects the immediacy of their technique and timelessness of their message. Through energetic brush strokes, expressive clay modeling, vibrant colors and construction by deconstruction, the viewer can witness the intangible in their work. Like our memories and without a direct timeline, each piece in this exhibition brings a fragmented reality with different points of view.

Tony Khawam’s abstract paintings invite us to observe life suspended in time. The rapid strokes in his images represent collapsed structures that mark a moment in time, while his use of bright colors embodies the timeless feeling of hope.

Jeff Whyman’s sculptural work invites the viewer to reflect on the circle of life. His vessels are created through rapid execution and full energy. In his process, Whyman creates a basic shape using clay that is rapidly modified with the addition of different shapes of clay and other materials.

Artist Statement:
“Bloom where you are Planted.” That is my motto here at The Bailey in Pompano Beach, FL. This body of work is primarily a result of my studio residency upstairs. I aim to provide completed, original paintings to add value to your home, office, or commercial business. As I’m maturing, I am undertaking the role of the owner of the work, attempting to add value to their lives. I’m casting a broad net, with intentions of growing my fan base. Enjoy!
