Press Release

The Journal Gallery is pleased to present "Freedom Culture," a group exhibition curated by Graham Collins.


Although the show’s organization began by focusing on two primary groups of work—text paintings, and what the curator refers to as figurative sculpture—the sculpture category is loose in definition, expanding to include a wide range of sculptural work which act as a foil for the text-driven wall works. The lines between the two groups are intentionally blurred, questioning the defining separation between painting and sculpture. The rigid geometry of painting becomes subdued among more poetic forms situated within the gallery space. A small group of photographs by artists typically associated with other mediums, adds an additional voice to the dialogue.


The exhibition outlines different modes of communication, exploring the way information can be abstracted and how contrasting forms come together to form a dialogue.
