Pete & Repeat

Opening tomorrow: Pete & Repeat: New work by Jamie Kovach at the Oveta Culp Memorial Gallery at Central Texas College.  The opening reception is this Thursday the 29th - I'll be giving a short talk on my work at 5 pm, so if you're in the area be sure to stop by!



Follow me @jamiekovach for updates, new work, and fun...


Pink Frosted, from the Sweet Nothings series, was accepted into the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center's annual contemporary photography exhibition, open June 12 - August 30. If you're in the area, you should definitely check it out - it looks like a great show! See a sneak peak from their facebook page below (look at all that pink!):

Experiments with frosting

Long ago, I filed muscles cars into the same category as birthday cakes in my brain – the candy-coated sheen on a sleek 442 has always made my heart stop. There is something about the presentation of these powerful machines that I find so undeniably attractive. Much like birthday cakes and other “just because” desserts, these beauties are as much about an alluring and celebratory presentation as their substance, both indulging in and capitalizing on their own desirability.

I recently started experimenting with this combination of ideas, creating paintings (or sometimes painted dioramas) of muscle cars, but using frosting in the place of paint. So far, I am definitely labeling them experiments – but we’ll see where they lead to next!
