Jeffrey Vallance
Rocket

Vallance’s Rocket is a vibrant picture in which masses of color and collage coalesce into a central vehicle, yet the whole surface seems lit with the roar of space travel. This varied use of media has enabled the artist to bring all of the life, energy, and objects he works with into a single image.

 

Jeffrey Vallance’s multidisciplinary work often is based on interactions with people and organizations, and can take such forms as surreptitiously replacing light sockets in art museums and exchanging neckties with world political leaders through the mail. Vallance also makes more traditional objects that draw on specific cultural vocabularies, both American and foreign.
