Press release from: Johansson Projects

In Sofie Ramos’ January residency at Johansson Projects, vivid playgrounds, fantastical constructions, and vibrantly textural wonderlands will take over the gallery space for her upcoming installation exhibition. Spilling beyond the confines of the canvas, Ramos stretches fabrics, string, sharp lines of color, and absurd forms in her physical interactions with space. Ramos insists on emphasizing process over outcome, resulting in installations where imagination runs free and throws itself into physical being. Her ‘visual logic’ contains an essential open-endedness and ambiguity. The resulting abstractions invoke human characteristics, domestic tropes through common household items, and integral elements of play. Ramos self-references mentor and poet Lyn Hejinian’s “Rejection of Closure” through the perpetually “unfinished” nature of her installations, discarding the hierarchy of “closure” in her ever-changing, ever-moving artistic process. She continuously reuses materials from past installations, so each individual piece lives on in newly evolved iterations. Her works exist in constant bold transition and cathartic, intuitive movement.

JAY NELSON | MAKING LANDS | JUNE 7 - JULY 20
In Jay Nelson’s prodigious body of built work there is always the dare for the viewer to see from a new perspective. To inhabit what he calls new ‘structures for seeing’. A Honda Civic, as a perspective. A tree, as a perspective. A backyard. The dare in Making Lands is to inhabit Nelson’s quiet nights after putting his children to sleep. And to take up that part calm, part strung
