Jo Shane


Sculptures: 1990 - Present ||
|| May 2 through June 1, 2019




Kendra Jayne Patrick presents 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 studied gestures and inventive compositions she offers by virtue of calculated material and contextual rearrangements of commonplace American stuff.
