Project_210 is pleased to present JAMIE SWEETMAN: Circulatory, a solo exhibition of new drawings that explore connections between human anatomy and plant life. Utilizing a variety of drawing media on both paper and translucent vellum, Jamie Sweetman layers multiple images to produce large and small works that are mysterious, bold and beautifully refined. Influenced by her personal experience of human dissection and love of organic forms, Jamie Sweetman’s drawings present patterns, structures and shapes found both in the human body and plants. In these parallel worlds, a cross section of human brain appears to be a tree and vines meander along the page like blood vessels. Jamie Sweetman’s ability to render anatomic forms is impeccable but her true accomplishment is merging various realities into hybrid drawings, where the sum is greater than the parts. One can happily get lost in her intertwined fantasy of fact and fiction.
Jamie Sweetman received an M.F.A. from California State University, Long Beach and a B.F.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles. She is on the faculty of the University of Southern California and has exhibited recently at El Camino College Art Gallery and Long Beach Museum of Art. Jamie Sweetman lives in Sierra Madre, CA.
