Jack Hanley Gallery is pleased to present Spaced, a summer drawing show.
An intimate activity, drawing is often a personal description of place, be that a physical location or metaphysical spot. The small, human-scale size of a drawing invites a peek into another’s inward-looking window. Shared as it is between viewer and maker, the exhibition is a kind of limbo that emphasizes and mediates individuals’ viewing-spaces.
Some humorous, others sensual, the works in show deal with this interior-exterior axis in ways that can be both familiar and strange. Rachel Garrard’s and Sissel Kardel’s mystical self-portraits touch upon a fluidity between nature and the self, while Jeff Olsson’s portraits of woodsmen in Swedish landscapes create an idiosyncratic folklore. In contrast are Tyson Reeder’s landscape and Keegan McHargue’s humorously abstracted figures, Chris Hood’s altered pop references, and Scott Reeder’s witty spaghetti-mades.
