HOUGHTON -- The Rozsa Gallery welcomes local artist Jess Kane, in a thought-provoking one-person exhibition of mixed-media work which utilizes printmaking, drawing and ceramic sculpture.
Jess Kane’s installation, titled "Cline," includes a collection of palm-sized talismans or touchstones that, in Kane’s words, "honor the influence of personal, cultural and physical histories. They challenge they way our index of memories informs our perception of the present."
"Cline" opens with a reception in the Rozsa Gallery from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 7. The exhibition will run through Saturday, Feb. 13, 2015, and is free and open to the public.
According to Kane, "The term 'Cline' is borrowed from ecology and references the display of continuous gradients in response to external factors. These artifacts wonder if a similar manifestation of lean could be created internally, as a shift in perception of value. How do time, and familiarity build the evidence of ownership? Referential shapes, colors and texture literally reflect this rhythm of possession that grows and changes, all the while, claiming security in habituation."
Rozsa gallery hours are Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. For more details, please click here.
