Ian Jehle, a DC-based artist and American University faculty member, has long been known for his sensitive, large scale portraits of members of the Washington art community. This exhibition will use those graphic portraits as the introduction to a new body of abstract drawings, based on mathematical algorithms. These complex, linear systems will be installed as site-specific wall drawings throughout the Alper gallery, and extending into the lobby area. Dynamical Systems will combine Jehle’s unusual combination of skill sets as a visual artist, teacher and mechanical engineer.
