Jason Vass Gallery Presents“Frontiers,” a two-person show, featuring work by artists Tadashi Moriyama and Rachel Pease.

The exhibition opens with an artists’ reception on Saturday, October 26 from 5-8 PM and will remain on view through December 7, 2019.


Each artist’s visionary works are intricately drawn by hand in ink, requiring time to slow down, look closely and experience; which we often do not have time for in the fast-paced digital era. There is an inherent storytelling in their bodies of work, with the narratives left unfinished, inviting mystery and contemplation. The two artists – who met at graduate school at the University of Pennsylvania in 2004 and married in 2007 – chose the show’s title to reference their move from New York City to Los Angeles in 2013, a journey they made with hopes of finding a new life in this historical western frontier. They since have had two children, and “Frontiers” also speaks to the uncharted territories of parenting, which have been an inspiration to them both. In their works, they channel the discovery process of life to create imagined vistas full of wonder. Moriyama’s works – which are acrylic and ink on paper, often stretched on wood – are visually based on urban grids and interstellar environments. Pease, who grew up in rural Indiana surrounded by vast lands and forests, explores nature in her works, which she creates with India ink pens on frosted mylar. “Frontiers” reflect on life beyond a border or boundary. Whether traveling from east to west, or from the past into the future, the unknown is always just a step away, as things change and the unrecognizable becomes reality.
