"WiFi Machine meets DJ InkBlot - Abstract Drawings by Jemal Diamond"
@ SoFA Market
South Bay Area artist Jemal Diamond’s covers the SoFA Market with his improvisational, playful, abstract drawings and illustrations. “My drawing style comes from the grand tradition of doodling. It’s the marks we make in the margins while our focused minds are elsewhere I find most interesting. Most of the work is improvisational, with no intended outcome – only hopeful surprises. Over the years several natural visual motifs developed that I return to again and again, “The Goddess,” “The City,” and the “Map to Heaven.” You’ll find these themes at work here, often a mix of two or all three. There are embedded intentional dichotomies to create a playground of visual cues and possible meaning.” Titles for Jemal’s work comes solely from viewers. Drop by the SoFa Market and add your own title right on the label!
