So This


So This, solo show


Mercury 20 Gallery, Oakland CA


August 2 – September 8, 2018

The sculpture in So This is both formal and disposable. Simple, legible, and minimal in design, the materials used are found wood and objects including plastic buckets, glass containers, clothing, buttons, chain, and cement block. The work explores states of coexistence and contexts informed by construction, arrangement, and contrast.

A series of paintings on found paper inspired by tantra paintings is also presented. Using the inverted triangle shape—the symbol for female power—these diagrams support visionary imaginative processes such as a female-centered future.

In the words of Iggy Pop

They say 'SO WHAT' I say 'SO THIS'.

Your honest face, your quiet, simple grace,

You are one thing I will not waste.
