February James at Wilding Cran Gallery
October 20, 2019 • 12:00 pm - October 27, 2019
On View: September 8th – October 27th, 2019
The back room of Wilding Cran Gallery has been transformed into an eerie sort of domestic space. A couch, coffee table, TV, and lamp made out of glued paper and cardboard are ghostly counterparts to actual furniture, and the artist has painted the gallery walls in a washy grey watercolor. This skeletal space is finished off with a set of framed watercolor portraits that hang throughout, each one peering out with a solemn expression. Taken as a whole, the exhibition feels both familiar and foreboding, and considers the impact that familial relationships have on our day-to-day experiences—or the potential burden that our past might carry into our future.
