Dawn Clements exposes the byways of cinematic angst and the ontological weightiness of intimate domestic spaces. Cynthia Lin fashions monumental drawings of skin and scars, exposing the vulnerable topography of the human body and psyche. Gelah Penn examines the mediated marks of an abstract, noirish, interior landscape, teeming with perceptual incident. Fran Siegel elucidates shifting urban geographies and communities in grandly dizzying and fragmented aerial views.
The exhibition will also feature a sequential collaborative piece by Clements, Lin, Penn and Siegel, which will be shown alongside their works. This collaborative work performs a call and response, wherein each artist was asked to “invade and claim” the territory of the previous artist’s contribution. This work involves particular zones of conflation in which all the artists’ rich geographies become enmeshed in various ways.
