Our middle gallery exhibition for the month of April features new works on paper by Jenna Faye Powell. Through the intricate work, Powell explores the role of fiction in our lives by treating perception as a form of artistic composition.
“Overnight Wisdom” presents survivalist tableau’s, designed to pivot between the world as it is and as it could be. Between the certainty of the status quo and the precariousness of envisioning what part ‘future us’ might play in the sci-fi story of society’s future. Steeped in a dizzying, otherworldly ether, works in this exhibit attempt to reconcile the newness with the familiar — as psychological messages of ‘story not found’ are returned.
