Bio
Jamie Panzer was born in New York, New York, reared in Silver Spring, Maryland,
and currently lives and works in Austin, Texas. He attended Old Dominion University
on a Soccer Scholarship, transferred to Carnegie-Mellon University to earn a BFA in
Art and Graphic Design, and then moved to Austin. He attended the Maryland Institute,
College of Art as a Graduate candidate for a year but returned to Austin to complete his
degree from The University of Texas at Austin as the first in the newly inaugurated
Transmedia Program in 1993. He then relocated to Baltimore to assume a position as
Assistant Director of Exhibitions at MICA and soon after became Art Director at an
interactive advertising agency in New York. He has exhibited in Pittsburgh, New York,
Austin, Houston, Dallas, Baltimore, Washington, DC, San Antonio and Los Angeles.
Panzer has shown extensively in Austin since his return to Texas. This will be his
second solo exhibition at Big Medium.
Artist's Statement

In my cross-disciplinary practice I scheme to reveal what is often hidden in plain sight,
using any and all means at my disposal to capitalize on what others have discarded,
taken for granted or are indifferent to. Materials are recycled based on how they appear
to resemble something else. For instance—the way a stick mimics a sword or magic wand.

I set about conjoining and manipulating them to create a newly contextualized ensemble.
I want to transform the overlooked into something novel, something of intrigue, humor
and or morbid curiosity.
 
The aim is to raise eyebrows—playing mischief with routine
convention—by presenting new things that are perceived to oscillate between
the familiar and illusion. This paradox lies at the core of my work and illuminates
allegorical possibilities specific to each project. This has been a consistent motif
throughout the arc of my creative development.
