The Holland Project Gallery is ushering in the winter season with two exciting new exhibitions – The Forest by Josie Luciano and I See How It Is by Christina Lee.
Josie Luciano will transform the main gallery space with her large-scale installation The Forest. Luciano is a Reno based artist interested in the bleeding boundaries between self and other, self and nature, & self and cultural myth. She works across various media including drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture. Luciano’s exhibit sets out to “simulate the feeling of being watched while asking viewers to examine their emotions, as they emerge from a whimsical, sinister, and/or reverent woods”. For more information about Luciano and her work visit josieluciano.com.
In the hallway space I See How It Is will showcase new drawings and wall installations by L.A. based artist Christina Lee. Lee’s work utilizes contrasting elements to create multiple interpretations through suggesting rather than stating. With her work, Lee navigates every day experiences by collecting, constructing and curating information and objects in a way that draws from the mundane and absurd. Lee approaches the work in a very minimal and controlled manner by restricting herself to as few moves as possible, stripping away things that could be ornamental or convoluted.
Lee received her BFA from UNR in 2009 and is currently working toward her MFA at CSU, Fullerton. She has exhibited work throughout California and Reno and this will be her first solo exhibition at the Holland Project. To learn more about Lee and her work visit christinamijunglee.com.
Both exhibitions will be on display from Dec. 16th – Jan. 9th with an Opening Reception on Friday, Dec. 19th from 6-8pm at 140 Vesta St, Reno.
The Holland Project Gallery is one of the go-to art spaces in Reno to see young, contemporary artists and their influences both regionally and nationally. The main gallery space, located at 140 Vesta Street, features 1-3 exhibitions a month with gallery hours Tuesday-Friday 3-6PM, or by appointment.
