> DESCRIPTION

An exhibition featuring the abstract paintings of three Los Angeles based artists.

Mary Addison Hackett addresses how we construct meaning out of chaos through the use of personal iconography and the language of painting. By fusing together disparate elements such as drips, hard edges, and expressionistic gestures, her work functions as a response to events and memories that make up each day. Inherent in the work is an implication of lack, often suggestive of a frustrated narrative.

 

Jenny Hager, through the use of centralization, negation and reinterpretation, seeks to sustain an associative dialogue that employs ambiguity and a highly personal symbol system representative of themes of passage and surveillance juxtaposed against constructed spaces or some kind of impediment.  Subtexts are injected through formal elements such as pressure, asymmetric balance and absence of finish.

 

Blandine Saint-Oyant's work explores the relationship between spontaneity and formality, between fluidity and control, and in a broader but idiosyncratic manner, between history's rigidity and the constant flux of the present by employing pouring, layering, and outlining to resolve aesthetic and personal dichotomies in her work.
