At the Party
Summer exhibition at I Like Your Work 
Curated by Jane Kang Lawrence
The colorful sculpture of Denise Triezman and Mia Risberg’s quiet drawing are sitting together on the couch, realizing despite their wild differences, they have a million things to talk about.  Chris Moss’ painting is pouring drinks and catching you up on what you missed, while Taro Takizawa’s print and Anna Ortiz’s paintings are in a corner having a serious discussion about the role of patience in their practice. At the Party there are works with sweeping qualities of precision, meditative beauty, humor and flirtation.  
This collection of insightful personas come together after a spell of quietness and disorientation in the world.  It is inspiring to know that these artists continued to not only create but also share with us the works of their innate curiosity in motion.  Their marks, both intentional and abstracted, capture a moment of their minds.  This is curiosity sparking work and I want to spend time with each one.  These are artists that enrich souls, inspire and create, and have done so beautifully.
Art is mindful, naughty, loud and still.  That’s the beauty of bringing artists together in one exhibit- some artists left with a drink in hand, high in spirit, while others slipped away without saying goodbye. No matter how they left, they left a gracious and surprising lasting impression.

Exhibition Statement: 

As of the last United Nations census in 2018, women represented nearly fifty percent of the global population, yet held less than 24% of national political offices worldwide. In the wake of the 2016 U.S. presidential election and with the 2020 presidential race upon us, artists and exhibition organizers Susan Hamburger and Jessica Hargreaves ask: why do we, as a society, still seem to have so much trouble envisioning and supporting women in power? To respond to this question, they have invited ten artists to join them in creating new work that explores the theme of women and power. read more...

Arts Intel Report
by Elena Clavarino 

Emily Roz’s vibrant oil paintings may leave you feeling slightly umoored. She creates a bright and upbeat dissonance. The female body parts she jigsaws into intensely colored and striped planes are at once familiar and abstract. The anonymous body in the paintings is actually hers, which brings to mind Christina Ramberg’s headless figures, or Maria Lassnig’s studies. Roz’s message is clear: She is simply a body, one that can be objectified. —E.C.
