Betwixt and/or Between is organized by John David O’Brien, and includes works by Nena Amsler, Fatemeh Burnes, Mark Steven Greenfield, Renée Lotenero, John David O’Brien, Pam Posey, Shirley Tse, Alexis Zoto, and Ismael de Anda III in collaboration with Eugene Ahn.
The Los Angeles based artists in this exhibition regularly transit between different worlds, be they inherited, imposed, physical, or philosophical. Betwixt and/or Between seeks to illuminate how these different vital points are connected within the artists, their practice, and ultimately the viewer. Art communicates by unfolding itself into our conscious and unconscious awareness – suggesting that meaning cannot be universally prescribed, as art resides in intersecting spaces of in-between.
The artists’ work wrestles with this complexity in painting, installation, drawing, sculpture and digital art. This exhibition explores interlocking sets of deliberations that range from formal to stylistic, narrative to personal, and sociological to historical, inviting the viewer into considerations that go beyond the surface.
The exhibition runs through December 11th, 2021
