Jay Gould shows at Loyola University

Jay Gould, MICA Photo faculty, presents Uncertain Passages…


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.

Jay Gould selected as HEMI/MICA Extreme-Arts-Program artist in residence


Jay_Gould_272x381MICA Photo is proud to announce that our own Jay Gould has been selected as the first Artist in Residence for the HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Program. The goal of this artist/designer in residence position is to bring MICA and JHU faculty together to collaborate and explore ways to represent, visualize, and/or interpret HEMI research. Jay will be working with JHU during the Spring semester, beginning in January 2016, and hopes to give them a new set of analogies and context for their research that may allow it to reach out beyond their peers and intrigue new audiences who are completely unaware of their work.

“I believe that many of us often look to science in a similar way that we look at art, not for cold calculation, but for a story, something amazing , and a new mystery for our minds to unravel.” ~ Jay Gould

Seeing / Being

Call for participation Deadline October 19

Middendorf Gallery,  November 5 – 16

This exhibition welcomes the varied interactions of photographic rendering and sculptural materiality. We want to see how you choose to interpret this theme by submitting work to potentially be included.

The interaction of photography and sculpture has an incredibly rich history and is constantly evolving. In many cases, both emphasize the materiality of the work and visually demonstrate the properties specific to a material. This may be the materiality of whatever surface a photograph is produced on, or a visual dialog between materials in a photograph and the materials existing in three dimensions. Photographs often serve to record ephemeral sculptures that cannot exist more than a moment or even evade the sensitivity of our eyes.

Where do you see the interaction? Can you show the audience this? We challenge you!
