MARK ST. MARY AND JOAN JACOBSON-ZAMORE @KEHLER LIDDELL GALLERY

Kehler Liddell Gallery presents two new concurrent solo shows: Mark St. Mary, No Longer Noticed Joan Jacobson-Zamore, Once Upon a Dream in Lapland January 11 - February 11.

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 13th, 4:00-7:00pm, with Artist Talk at 3:00pm.

About the show:
Lost Dog. CD Release Party. Tag Sale. Posted to streetlight poles and utility boxes, notices like these create a collage of various colors, images, and typefaces. Mark St. Mary has spent the past year photographically studying the results of their eventual removal, where the residual adhesives look like a community game of visual Mad Libs®. No Longer Noticed, is an exhibition of the resulting rectilinear patterns, dystopian landscapes, and anthropomorphic forms.

While St. Mary's work unearths a kind of collective subconscious, Joan Jacobson-Zamore presents a series of dreamlike landscapes and scenes in Once Upon a Dream in Lapland. The artist states the concept for the show developed after a trip to Finland, and says the pieces ask us "to suspend our sense of reality for just a moment." Zamore sees her work as a "rekindling of the natural energy around [her] and a waking of the playful or mysterious magic within."
