Invisible Architecture: Ian Miyamura, Hasani Sahlehe, Jaclyn Mednicov, Alessandra Norman, Salvador Dominguez, and Sonya Bogdanova

March - April 2023

Curated by Marina Ross

Opening Reception, March 17 | 5-7pm

INVISIBLE ARCHITECTURE is an exhibition of paintings and sculptures by six artists whose works evoke a meditative response through the interaction between form and fluidity. Within the geometric architecture of a painting, painters Ian Miyamura and Hasani Sahlehe search for ways to break down boundaries and suggest a dissolving state of perception. Similarly, Alessandra Norman airbrushes soft paint onto rigid CNC-routed panels, collapsing the distance between the exterior natural landscape and the interior architecture of windows and fences. Jaclyn Mednicov and Salvador Dominguez use mold making processes to re-present quotidian forms into new interpretations that reveal the atmospheric residue of the objects and suggest the passing of time. Sonya Bogdanova creates heavy and tender ceramic clouds, placed in domestic spaces to address the spiritual weight of working toward the American dream. The works act as symbols for the body to address the transient state of our perceptions, and make us aware of dissolving boundaries within ourselves.
