About Jay Zerbe
I was born in 1949, in South Bend, Indiana. I have been painting since I was fourteen. I have shown with various galleries over the years. Mostly in the Chicago, but also in New York, Santa Fe, and Omaha. The contrast of chaos with order provides the structure for my work. The appearance of order breaks down under scrutiny, which mirrors my understanding of reality. My emotions seek pattern and rationality, while my intellect sees mismatched parts and ambiguous systems. The core of my work revolves around juxtaposing these diverse structures and their uncertain references.
