Artists Space is pleased to announce an exhibition by Jana Euler. As its title suggests, Euler’s new works extend many of the artist’s painterly investigations of the dynamic interrelations of sentient forms and their surrounding space—institutional, domestic, and perceptual. Unform stretches and complexifies the nature of painting itself, renewing its energy in confronting the conditions that inform identity and self-perception.
Responding directly to the renovation and character of Artists Space’s new exhibition space, Euler’s paintings include both conventionally-stretched canvases and expansive structureless forms that function as autonomous beings and architectural elaborations. In these works, Euler manipulates the forms of figurative representation to delineate new ways of looking at social and cultural confinements as well as those rare catalytic moments of change or realization, be they emotional or institutional, where unforming leads to reforming.
