Dimpled, Twisted, And Buried says
An exhibition featuring the work of Jade Abner, Iva Kinnaird, Evelyn Pustka, and Emily Whittemore
Curated by Kelly Johnson

Opening Reception: Friday, January 29, 2016, 6-8pm
On view January 29, 2016 - March 4, 2016

Dimpled, Twisted, and Buried features four artists whose work references the physical complexities and awkwardness that comes with living in a body. The artists point toward the mutability and uncertainty of inhabiting and maneuvering a physical form. Through painted self-portraiture, process-oriented sculpture, site-specific installation, and intimate photography, each artist examines the strangeness of the body from their own perspective.

The public is invited to a free reception beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday, January 29,2016, at Fresh Arts, 2101 Winter Street, Studio B11, Houston, TX, 77007. Free parking is available.

These works consider the body as both necessity and limitation. Abner's soft, flexible sculptures echo shriveled torsos or stretched-out hides of skin. Kinnaird's installations and sculptures allude to injury and mortality. Pustka's balmy images reference the anxieties and discomforts that stem from embodied existence. And Whittemore's photographic painted self-portraits feature poses of herself sinisterly smiling, awkwardly twisting, and flagrantly flaunting.

The title is representative of the modifications that a body can experience over time, and directly names postures, gestures, and configurations that are visible in the works. Johnson says, "Viewers can relate to these objects both physically and emotionally-we all have bodies and we all feel the biological and psychological tensions inherent in living in one."
