For some folks, as the song goes, “the livin’ is easy.” But around the gallery, things are jumping. We’re busy making videos, showing paintings, and looking forward to our summer show of Jennifer Lee.
One of the biggest accomplishments of the gallery has been the presentation of artists from other countries. We’ve brought Goro Suzuki, Sugimoto Sadmitsu and Satoru Hoshino from Japan. Our two shows of Georges Jeanclos from France were momentous and we’ve presented Gustavo Pérez (Mexico) many times, as well as Wouter Dam (Holland).
In just two weeks, we’ll have another exhibit of the timeless work of Scottish-born Jennifer Lee. Jennifer lives and works in London, but her vessels demonstrate a truly global influence. Her work is often compared to the sort of geological strata and rock formations that characterize deserts, a far cry from her green and misty home. While at the Edinburgh College of Art, Jennifer spent several months researching the ceramics of Native Americans in the south-western United States, and she has since traveled to Egypt, India, Australia and Japan as well as Europe and the USA. These experiences lend an international quality to her work, which we are happy to bring to Los Angeles to share with you.
The exhibition Jennifer Lee: New Work opens Saturday, July 14th and runs through August 11th. Jennifer will join us for a reception from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm on opening night, and we hope you will too!
