ARTAMO GALLERY presents the newest works from three series of paintings by Jack N. Mohr: In Balanced the artist pairs intuitive paintings with sides of a single color — a balancing act of contradicting visual elements. In his Duality-Series he combines equally sized canvases coming from left and right brain approaches, and his Black-Series features bold, rhythmic single-panel works. 

Jack N. Mohr,
 a native of Berlin, Germany, studied visual communication and earned his M.A. in graphic-design at the State University for Creative Arts (now University of Arts) in Berlin. 1997 he moved to Santa Barbara, California. Aside from his graphic-design work he is home in a variety of art mediums including photography, collage, sculpture, print making, painting and also ceramics. But painting with acrylics and mixed media became is his focus and still is for the last 15 years.

In his mostly abstract art he likes to explore bold movements, and how light and shadow, contrasting shapes and textures or colors interrelate with each other and balance out in the finished composition.
