Kendra Jayne Patrick is thrilled to present a solo exhibition of archival and new artwork by Jo Shane. Since the early 1980’s, Shane has fashioned a panoramic range of readymade items into austere, astute, and deeply personal sculptures. This is a concise survey of the artist’s work through the present, organized around the formal strategies she employs to construct them. Whether a work contemplates child-rearing or parodies Romanticism, Shane’s gestures are studied and her compositions inventive and resolute. Calculated material and contextual rearrangements of commonplace Readymade items result, unconcealing multiverses of meaning therein.
Jo Shane is now represented by Kendra Jayne Patrick and this is her first exhibition with the gallery. The exhibition will be open Tuesday – Saturday, 11-6pm and by-appointment through June 1, 2019.
