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

architectural elements.

While Ashley Hagen plays with works that delve into the limitless

mystery of childhood, conjuring metaphors of home, self-fantasy and

reality, architect and artist Jenny Donaire’s installations blur the

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.
