Opening Reception Saturday December 15, 6 - 8pm

gallery km is pleased to present our first solo exhibition of work by Los Angeles-based artist Jessika Wood. The exhibition features mixed media paintings on paper, all formed on pages culled from a series of vintage international cook books, each featuring the culture and cuisine of a distinct country. The show includes one and two-page spreads showing a variety of Wood's painted forms integrated into the existing vintage cultural imagery of the books, often including sexualized female figures, as well as animal and food imagery. Wood's interruptions and integrations into the books conflate and blur the boundary between different forms of physical and cultural desire and consumption. The exhibition also includes a three minute video of Wood turning the pages through one of the painted cookbooks in its entirety. The exhibition will be on view from December 15 through January 26th, with a reception for the artist on December 15 from 6 to 8pm.
