Upcoming Shows in the Fall of 2015
There's a lot going on in and out of the studio right now. I wanted to keep you up to date on what's going on and where you can see work. I'll by showing many of my remaining Singles Faire pieces at two shows coming up. I'm working on a lot of work for #thisiswhyimsingle in February with my brand new body of work Match/Enemy and working on a few other things. I hope you can make it out for a few of the shows below and certainly my artist talk with the DC Arts Center exhibition in January

Creating exceptional small work requires as much if not more effort than working in standard sizes. Every mark is amplified and leaves little room for error. The shows title referencing This is Spinal Tap reinforces how the artists push our expectations within the confines of diminutive scale.

Singles Faire: Intimate Gestures

Singles Faire is a body of work by artist Jenny Walton that repurposes instructional physical therapy diagrams to imagine narratives within attraction of the opposite sex. The figures in the works take on new meanings when attention is given to the subtle interplay between postures what was once a neutered illustration becomes a situation of potential intimacy with the opposite sex. The added layer of ambiguity from implied non-verbal communication between subjects opens the works to multiple interpretations ranging from attraction to repulsion.
The small paintings in Singles Faire: Intimate Gestures were created on New York City, Washington, DC transit fare cards, and paper ephemera. These bits of paper intensify metaphors of passage and journey from their original intentions as fare cards to works that develop layered meanings in body langauge. A variety of techniques including media transfer, watercolor, and drawing were used to create these works into awkwardly humorous views into the lives of singles.
