This event has ended.

Calico presents Jon Legere’s third solo exhibition in NYC.

Legere is a Bermudian mixed media artist currently living in Brooklyn. He works with video, paint, collage, photography, performance, and sculpture. His process involves searching, salvaging, and repurposing. “As a child I would collect the flotsam and jetsam from Bermuda’s shores. Bits of weathered plastic, softened glass and marine rope encrusted with barnacles. I would covet the waste and give it imaginary purpose. My recent work appropriates imagery into collages on paper, canvas and found objects. Resurrecting disregarded materials into a maelstrom of shape, color and form is calmly satisfying.”

Jon Legere’s collaborative interactive data installation “TURNS” with mentor Margot Lovejoy was part of the 2002 Whitney Biennial in New York City. His work has been shown in galleries globally. German publisher Gestalten featured his collages in the 2013 book “The Age Of Collage”.
