The City of Santa Monica Cultural Affairs Division will host an
opening reception at the Annenberg Community Beach House for "Shelf
Perception" this Thursday, March 6 from 6 pm to 8 pm.
This new exhibition highlights the work of four Los Angeles-based
female artists who reconsider the traditional art object by negotiating
the spaces between painting, sculpture, photography, and domestic and
While Ashley Hagen plays with works that delve into the limitless
mystery of childhood, conjuring metaphors of home, self-fantasy and

boundaries between architectural and photographic space, functioning
like portals to memory and imagination.
Elizabeth Tinglof’s painting and wall-hanging sculptures, made from
synthetic and natural materials that are allowed to undergo
unpredictable performative processes, function as deconstructive
conversations about binary oppositions: artificial versus real,
structure versus chaos, repulsion versus seduction.
Emily Sudd engages themes related to consumerism, kitsch, the
fetishism of objects, hierarchies of materials, the fear and joy of
change and processes of demolition and metamorphosis.
