Beyond the Box


 This was the piece I had in the Swerve show.  All of the artists in the show work mostly in 2D and they were asked to make a three-dimensional object.

I've been on the moth kick lately so I made this about thinking beyond the box.  The box is filled with eyeless moths that all look the same.  This one has some color and it is free.  Free to dream and fly.

I'm In Swerve, a Group Show



For Immediate Release:

ShoeboxLA Presents
Swerve:  A group show curated by Sophia Allison
Saturday, February 11, 2012 from 3-7pm
Kabab Way – Glendale
919 S. Glendale Ave. Glendale, CA 91205

Swerve:  Professional wrestling terminology that describes an unexpected action or event that takes the audience by surprise.

ShoeboxLA is pleased to present its first group show, Swerve, curated by gallery co-founder Sophia Allison.  Artists Amparo Jelsma, Melissa Manfull, Julio Panisello, Carl Smith, and Jaime Ursic primarily work in the two-dimensional realm (painting, drawing, printmaking); for this exhibition, however, each artist was asked to create a work of sculpture. Beyond size restrictions, no other instructions or requirements were provided. While it is not unusual for artists to work in both painting and sculpture simultaneously, it can be a challenge to move fluidly between these mediums. The resulting work may or may not be a translation of the artists’ primary practice but it will be exciting to view the results.  Join us for this special event.
