Canadian Artist, Jessica Pezalla making it in San Francisco


She is currently taking part in a two person exhibit at Mark Wolfe Contemporary Art. If you scroll down, way down, here, you can read where Debra Koppman writes
Pezalla employs easily available materials, including papier-mâché, felt, wire, epoxy clay and rocks to build sculptures and installations that unfold over time. Building what she describes as “waterless human-scale aquariums,” Pezalla uses obviously artificial materials to create a parallel universe, resembling but not imitating natural ecosystems. Filled with repeating open organic forms, the “sea life” presented has clearly emerged as much from imagination as from observation. Some of the pieces walk across the floor, others are attached to the walls, others hang down into the space. Some have color, but more of the structures are white, whether made of paper, felt, or epoxy-coated wire. In addition to suggesting sea-life in a quirky kind of way, they also reference other living and not-living things. Crab Nebula, for example, brings to mind wheels piled up on top of wheels, just waiting to move on, as it does its namesake.
If you're in the San Francisco area, the vernissage is tomorrow night. If you go, please let me know what it is like. Thanks
