Dab Art is pleased to present CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE, a solo exhibition by artist Jane Peterson at NAMBA Arts Space in Downtown Ventura.
In this body of work, Peterson continues to explore the spectrum of human emotion, adopting a “forensic” approach to her subject matter. Each piece contains the elements of a story; objects in context with an environment. Clues are there, in terms of shape, smell, and texture.
Peterson aims to create a new form of realism, where narrative truth is found in the simple relationships of objects. Her deceivingly simple imagery and textual juxtapositions convey the temporal coexistence of these objects in both the real and the imagined world. By resisting any single cohesive meaning, Jane’s ensemble functions as a strategy that reveals her ultimate subject matter to be the viewer’s experience.
Jane Peterson earned her M.F.A. from the University of Iowa, and has shown extensively in galleries in New York City, as well as Northern and Southern California. She works from her studio located at H Gallery + Studios in Midtown Ventura. She also maintains a separate studio at this location, devoted to Installations of her more conceptual pieces.
