Raffaella Cortese is proud to present Glimpse, a solo show by Jessica Stockholder with whom the gallery has been working since 2000. The show will be in the gallery space on Via Stradella 1.

Jessica Stockholder is one of the most influential artists working today in the United States. She works with accumulations of mundane materials (furniture, chairs, fabrics, kitchen tools, plastic boxes, lamps).

Raffaella Cortese is proud to present Glimpse, a solo show by Jessica Stockholder with whom the gallery has been working since 2000. The show will be in the gallery space on Via Stradella 1.

Jessica Stockholder is one of the most influential artists working today in the United States. She works with accumulations of mundane materials (furniture, chairs, fabrics, kitchen tools, plastic boxes, lamps). Using paint and color together with objects from the world, her art transforms the viewer’s attention to perception, creating circumstance for familiar space and objects to be seen with fresh eyes.

The altered relationship between objects, combined and her unusual sense of color are orchestrated within a pictorial framework. The work generates various moods and carries forth an abstract sort of narrative that can be understood as analogous to the flow of sound over time in music. Within this structure, and making use of the illusionistic space generated by the painting’s surface, Stockholder’s work allows for the experience of fantasy and fiction.

This exhibition at Raffaella Cortese Gallery presents a group of works from the studio that is fresh, playful and also poetic.

Recent works include various big public installations: Color Jam in Chicago, Flooded Chambers Maid in Madison Square Park NYC, and the seminal site specific work at the Cristal Palace/ Reina Sophia in Madrid titled Peer Out to See. All of these works bridge painting, sculpture, and architecture.
