Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce Spool, an exhibition of recent work by Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann, on view from November 7 to 30. Mann’s paintings sit at the nexus of multiple worlds, occupying that in-between space where landscape drifts toward abstraction and back again. Layers of stylized foliage, traces of the geologic, and suggestions of rain and water-logged terrain coalesce as dazzling, feverish energy. Other visual references, many of them decorative in nature, also enter Mann’s mise-en-scenes to shift their tone and confer new meaning. The paintings are fragmented and full—maximal in a way that conjures unfettered abundance rather than congestion.
Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann was born in 1983, in Madison, Wisconsin. She earned a BA from Brown University in 2005 and an MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2009. She is the receipient of numerous grants and awards, including a Fulbright to Taiwan and a recent residency at Mass MOCA in North Adams, Massachusetts. Her work has been exhibited across North America, Europe, and Asia. This will be her first solo exhibition at the Dolby Chadwick Gallery.
