Jeffery Cooper

Jeffery Cooper, "Partisan", 2014, Walnut wood and paint 48 (h) x 12 (w) x 10 (d)

Solo exhibition of recent wood sculptures by Jeffery Cooper.

About the Artists: Jeffery Cooper worked as a mathematician for 40 years before doing sculpture, but he does not attempt to use mathematically generated curves and shapes in his sculpture. Nevertheless the mathematical experience informs his work in an indirect fashion. He works in wood because it is always alive, always changing, through shrinking and expanding, darkening from light, and aging by weather when outdoors. Rather than carving in a single piece of wood, he usually forms a construction from many pieces, combining grains and figures in the wood. His sculptures are made to attract the eye and invite the viewer to look at details. The sculptures have associations beyond those of the physical object, but do not need extensive explanation. His work has been shown in local galleries and juried shows.

About the Artist: Krista Caballero is an interdisciplinary artist whose work unpacks cultural myths relating to the “American” West, technology, gendered land use, and ideas of the sublime. She received her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts/Tufts University and in 2009 attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Her work has been presented across the United States as well as internationally in exhibitions and festivals such as the 2014 International Symposium on Electronic Art in Dubai, “Paradoxes in Video” at Mohsen Gallery in Tehran, and the 2013 Balance-Unbalance International Festival in Queensland, Australia. In 2010 Caballero created Mapping Meaning, a transdisciplinary project that brings together a select group of artists, scientists and scholars to address issues of ecological complexity and long-term sustainability. Inspired by a photograph from 1918 depicting an all-female survey crew, the project is rooted in a five-day experimental workshop that takes place biennially on the Colorado Plateau (www.mappingmeaning.org). Caballero is currently the Associate Director of the Design | Cultures + Creativity program at the University of Maryland in College Park. This honors program brings together students from all majors to explore emerging technologies and their impact upon the world.

Laini Nemett: East of Sheridan

Laini Nemett, “Queensboro Seine”, Oil on canvas, 82 x 61 inches

Laini Nemett’s recent paintings and constructions piece together fragments of place to investigate ways of both conceiving and experiencing “home”.

Stairs, hallways, balconies, construction sites—details from interior and exterior spaces I pass through are the raw materials of my studio practice.

Extended time in various architectural cultures has shaped how I understand the idea of home. In São Tomé, Africa, collage-like architecture and organic urban growth allows each building to tell its own current narrative; in Baltimore, Maryland, buildings are bordered up and left as skeletons of a family’s history. In the boroughs of New York, old façades are painted away or torn down as new anonymous condo projects begin almost every day. I piece together fragments of place to investigate ways of both conceiving and experiencing “home”.

Artist Bio: Laini Nemett lives and works in Long Island City, New York. She received a B.A. from Brown University and M.F.A. from the Hoffberger School of Painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Nemett’s work has appeared in solo and group exhibitions in the U.S. and China. In 2012, she was awarded a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant and received the "Young Artist Award” from the Bethesda Painting Awards. Recent residencies and fellowships include UCross Artist Residency and Jentel Artist Residency in Wyoming and The Alfred & Trafford Klots International Program in France. Nemett is an adjunct faculty member at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Nancy Daly: About 286,000,000 Results

Nancy Daly, Detail of "How to Pick Your Fall Coat" from the series "About 286,000,000 results”, Inkjet Print, 8.5 inches x 60 inches

Nancy Daly's current body of work examines how the development of the online social world is affecting identity and social behavior. By creating interactive machines reminiscent of outdated technology, she addresses the contradictions present in various social media that are at once ephemeral and entirely permanent. Interactivity and the vocabulary of minimalist sculpture are key elements of her installations that challenge the viewer to look beyond the user-friendliness of online technology and consider what their participation in social media means.

STATEMENT FOR “ABOUT 286,000,000 RESULTS”

On the internet, frequency has become more important than value when establishing relevance. Companies not only need to create products, but they have to generate written content about them with unceasing fervor in order to remain on the first page of search engine results. Often, these companies outsource content management and blog posting to keep up with the relentless demands for content, while not expending their time and energy doing so. These hired content writers, often not experts in the fields they are writing for and often writing for upwards of 10 clients a day in a wide range of fields, must first do research. Short on time because of high daily word count demands, these content writers turn to the internet as the most obvious source of information. They find themselves citing other companies and organizations who are presumably also employing content writers to do the same sort of research. The result is the same information, appropriated and rearranged in different ways and put back into the internet in an endless loop. This series addresses this process of research, regurgitation, and buildup that has become so prevalent online and that only serves to dilute and obscure the content being cited.
