Press release from: Johansson Projects

In Rabble-Rousers, Megan Reed’s marching sculptures, watched by the disconcertingly unwholesome crowds in Jennie Ottinger’s paintings, together activate the gallery space into a kind of parade ground for resistance, rebellion, and/or collective merry-making.

Through loud, chromatic palettes and vivid textures, both Reed and Ottinger create work that is tactile, vocal and slyly humorous. The viewer is invariably drawn into the rabble-rousing, tangled up into its web of discourse; urged to join in or play along. Reed’s anthropomorphic sculptures arouse our emotions and function as figurative firebrands, instigators of trouble and fun. The teetering figures are fragile yet dynamic, provoking or pleading both each other and the viewer. Ottinger’s hoards of eerily smiling faces blend into a painted mass, invoking the passions of the mob. Her fragmentary crowds seem just at the brink of rebellion, elbowing and shoving their faces through to the forefront. The uniformed ensembles and choreographed poses are the last vestiges of visible civilization.

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

ANNA FIDLER + CATHY LU | HER KIND | 5-8PM FRI FEB 1
Cathy Lu and Anna Fidler shape new myths surrounding characters of the past. With bright colors, topographic energy portraits sculpted from layers of paper, and misshapen ceramic imitations, their works declare a distinctly feminine revolution. Inspired by the ancient Chinese myth of the Immortal Peach Garden, where peaches represent longevity and prosperity, and combining that with the sexualized symbols that they are in American pop culture, Lu transforms these peaches
