Mind the Gap
December 3, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Strata Gallery presents its first two-person exhibition, Mind the Gap by New Mexico based artists David Olivant and Jennifer Van.
The exhibition opens November 30th, with a special reception on December 3 from 5-7 pm.
Mind the Gap is Strata Gallery’s first two-person exhibition to showcase an established and an emerging artist together and in dialog. David Olivant’s Retrogylphs reinvent characters and imagery from earlier sculptures and assemblages. Jennifer Van’s photography centers on emotional expression and the human form. While on the surface the artwork is quite different, each artist is deeply concerned with the expression and communication of nuanced emotional states filtered through diverse perspectives. Together these works explore the fraught dynamics of human contact and the nature of the interpersonal “gap” that humans constantly have to “mind”.
David Olivant is a native of England and got his MA from the Royal College of Art in London. After three years living in New Delhi in the mid-eighties where he had his first solo exhibition he moved to the US. Since then, he has shown in NYC, Chicago, LA, Fresno, Santa Fe and Davis.
Jennifer Van received her BFA in Graphic Arts and a BA in Art History from California State University Stanislaus. Her work has been exhibited in California and New Mexico.
Strata Gallery is open from 10 am to 5 pm.Tuesday–Saturday. For more information about Strata Gallery, the current exhibit, and the future schedule of events, please visit the Strata Gallery website and Instagram.
