A solo exhibition by BOLT Resident Homa Shojaie
Opening Reception: January 20, 6-9pm
Exhibition Runs: January 20-February 10, 2012
Homa Shojaie presents ASCENT, an installation that investigates the material space of canvas to explore archetypal personas. Shojaie’s new work creates a meditative space that builds on the potential of canvas while metaphorically referencing the body. As the warps and the wefts of the raw canvas are methodically peeled away, layers of meaning reveal the subject’s emotional landscape. Hovering on the edges of painting, architecture, sculpture and text, Shojaie’s installation references a zone that never fully attaches itself to any one discipline. Instead, ASCENT is continuously shifting, carefully diffusing the boundary of the threads found in the frayed canvas, simultaneously revealing everything and nothing.
