When conveyed with a delicate hand, dark, heavy subject matter becomes tractable enough for us to approach it, reflect on it, and digest its message. Jennifer Poon accomplishes this in her upcoming solo exhibition “Strange Blooms,” creating a provocative dialogue by juxtaposing her meticulous watercolors with her obsessively crafted fabric sculptures. Mining the relatable from both human and animal subjects, Poon’s studio practice is at once intellectual and emotional; she maximizes the feminine nature of her media while allowing it to express compelling and bleak themes. Cut and sewn paper, gouache, and watercolor along with densely stitched, stained, and sculpted fabrics narrate the Artist’s personal relationship with sorrow, death, and decay. These somber and beautiful meditations on mortality constitute Jennifer Poon’s third solo exhibition with the Gallery.
