Emily Sudd: Sitting in the Dark


James Harris Gallery Downtown
Oct 20–Nov 30, Wednesdays–Saturdays


Recommended by Joule Zelman

Los Angeles artist and university instructor Emily Sudd is becoming known for cheeky, sometimes literal mash-ups of utilitarian ceramic objects and post-minimalist sculptures, like plates and vessels jammed onto an easel-perched canvas or a bisected vase full of melted ceramic detritus. In this exhibition, her 3-D pieces will be accompanied by stainless-steel jewelry chains strung into tapestry-like arrangements. Some are elegant, others rough, chunky, and even downright ugly. Some evoke destructive processes; others seem purely abstract, yet eschew formalism through the use of unconventional materials. All toy with the distinctions between art, junk, implement, and decoration.
