Compositional counterbalancings and directional recalibrations have played significant transitional roles in the arc of Jeffrey Bishop’s career as an artist. I got a broad glimpse of all such consistency and flux when I visited him in his Fort Greene studio, where our conversation about his work led us also to converse about scientific minds, cerebral imaging, plasmic flows, cognitive connectivities, recurrent bulbousnesses, explosive angularities, landscaped etherealities and variably discernible sheens.
We also talked about skydiving and rebuilt knees. And about flows of people and surprising finds in Ecuador.
And about the strangely fruitless research one might be led to undertake by mistakenly remembering a sock.
Here are some photos of Jeffrey’s work and studio. For more images and info, visit his website.
