Ecstatic Objects

January 20 – February 22

The exhibition “Ecstatic Objects” brings together the work of three contemporary artists
working in sculpture. The artists Jessica Vogel Brown, Blas Isasi and Brittan Rosendahl
share a love for transforming every day, often mundane or discarded objects into works
of art that transcend their original function.  Blas Isasi Gutiérrez and Jessica Vogel
Brown use common construction materials like drywall, plaster, pinewood, and house
paint to create dynamic, and unexpected compositions. Brittan Rosendahl sources found
print objects such as encyclopedic imagery and pages from telephone books that converge
into map-like constellations. With a process oriented approach, these three artists
challenge our expectations about objecthood—shifting the soft into the sturdy, the
inanimate into the animate, and the ordinary into the exalted.
