“My installation features visual art (abstract paintings and works on paper) and written word (poems, aphorisms and conceptual provocations),” said David Jacobsen Loncle. Their purpose is “to evoke experiences and make open questions of our relationship to the way we see and how we arrive at understanding in the world.”
Jacobsen Loncle is a visual artist and writer who has taught classes in studio art and civics at the College of Staten Island for 10 years. His work was selected to participate in a 2017-18 traveling exhibition featuring prominent Staten Island artists at the Newhouse Gallery at Snug Harbor Cultural Center. Jacobsen Loncle selected and edited “To Whom the Shoe Fits: Letters to Young Painters,” a compilation of writing and artwork by the artist Pat Passlof, which was published in 2018 by the Milton Resnick and Pat Passlof Foundation. He is currently an artist-in-residence with the New York City arts organization Chashama.
