Jarrett Christian: “Looks Like Rain, Feels Like Rain”
January 22 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Friday and Saturday, repeating until February 6, 2021
An award winning portrait photographer, Jarrett Christian’s plans in 2020 to document the faces and places around the American South were scuttled by the COVID-19 pandemic. Pivoting to a studio practice, the artist began to develop a way of making objects and images that blur the distinctions between photography, painting, and sculpture. Framed photographs float above painted portraits; magazine images are collaged in with tape, vinyl, and painted cardboard jumbles; jagged paper strips make a shaggy frame. As materials are shuffled and reconstructed, so too is meaning. We hunt for clues in Landscape Data’s large-scale word search game, just as we dig for contexts or relationships between the mash-up of street photos and vintage pictures in the mural-sized Circumnavigating The Capital Of The New Southwest Territory (pictured). Exhibit runs through Feb. 6. Gallery hours are noon–5 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, or by appointment.
