New Show
Paintings by Jordan Daines.
Opening reception May 21
6:00 - 9:00 p.m.

SPACE presents Tame, a new series of oil paintings by South Pasadena artist Jordan Daines. She has exhibited her work in several group shows at SPACE, and has won over many fans with her painterly style and vivid palette.

With this new series Daines brings her eye from the landscapes of her earlier work indoors to the material trappings of domestic life. She renders commonplace objects with bold abstracted strokes, reminding us of the excess of material goods around us, but also celebrating their simple beauty with each tonal variation. The paintings will be on view at SPACE through Saturday, July 2nd.

Featured in the SPACE storefront window are life-sized sculptures created by Cynthia Minet from a series of domestic animals made from recycled and re-purposed plastics, and LEDs. The work is part of an ongoing project which addresses the topic of genetic modification of animals, the prevalence of plastics in our environment and the food chain, and the dependence our culture has on electricity.
