sp[a]ce at Ayzenberg is thrilled to announce its fourth exhibition, The Universe Is In Us, curated by Mark Todd, opening December 8, 2018. The exhibition will comprise of the work of 8 artists whose work often explores a mixed media approach, including collage, sculpture, painting and drawing: Abira Ali, Anita Kunz, Saiman Chow, Seonna Hong, Shannon Freshwater, Somsara Rielly, Souther Salazar and Sung Jik Yang.

For The Universe Is In Us, Todd has assembled a diverse array of artists who honor the vastness of the universe around us through the raw material of our physical biology, our spirit, our emotion, and just everyday life on planet earth in contemporary society.

“What are we made of?” Todd asks in his curator statement. “Hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, nitrogen. The universe is inside of us all. Incredible as it is, we are literally made of stars. But what of our thoughts, dreams, hopes, worries? This too is inside. The eight artists in this exhibition expose these complexities that make us who we are and reveal them to us through a hodgepodge of collage, pencil, inks, oils and acrylics. Portraits of strangers stare back at us. Familiar but dreamlike landscapes swirl. Other worlds and oversized figures are on display. Playful and poetic, the work in this show is honest and sincere. At times, powerfully obsessive, at other times quiet and austere. The connection that ties them is what is inside each and every one of us.”

This is Todd’s fourth exhibition with sp[a]ce at Ayzenberg, and continues the gallery’s unique focus on contemporary work.

The Universe Is In Us will be on view to the public from December 8, 2018 to March 31, 2019.
