with a side of El Pussy Cat
— Jess Fuller introduces a gridded language. Clarifying diagrammatic or butchered synecdoche. A series of clues to decipher, but are we privy to the entirety? Everything different feels too different.
Jam on Toast
sporting an Illegal Smile
— Borne of obsessive behavior interpreted through a
meditative process. Washing, dyeing, fraying, unweaving, painting, and again; for Fuller,
recontextualized on the [canvas]. Culminating in a repetition of shape and character, form
and color, pattern and multi layered systems.
careening the Neon Jungle
— We welcome this system and its puzzles through a
continuity of its relations. Ana Mendieta’s femininity, Alfred Jensen’s spirit, Lenore Tawney’s
devotion, and the likes. We travel between eternities. Thank you for that.
