julio-300x200

The Julio Fine Arts Gallery at Loyola University Maryland presents Uncertain Passages, work by Jay Gould. Jay Gould is a mixed-media, contemporary artist working with themes of science and storytelling. His work explores a wide range of conceptual material using photography, often in combination with machine driven and hand-crafted fabrication of wood and acrylic. The Uncertain Passages series explores and meditates on the unobservable reality that theoretically underpins our existence. The artworks seek to balance the exhaustion of attempting to photograph an idea that may prove not to exist with the poetic license that comes from working with currently unknowable paradoxes. 

Jay Gould holds an M.F.A. in Photography from Savannah College of Art & Design, Savannah, Georgia, and a B.F.A. from University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire, Wisconsin. He was an Artist in Residence & Visiting Scholar at the HEMI Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD and a United States Winner at the Magenta Foundation Flash Forward Festival, Boston, MA. Gould has exhibited his work throughout the U.S. and abroad. He currently teaches at Maryland Institute College of Art.
