Jonathan Lyndon Chase: Sheets

"Drawing from his everyday experiences, Chase examines the relationship between space and gender as social constructs; the ways in which gender identity is affected by our immediate environment and the dominant societal norms that exist within that space. For Sheets, Chase delves further into this idea of gender performativity, using spatial obscurity as a means of protecting his autobiographical subjects from the trappings of ethno-cultural stereotypes and societal expectations. Fragmented, multi-dimensional characters are placed within abstract and ambiguous backdrops, diminishing existing structures that forcefully define how conventionally masculine and feminine bodies are supposed to function in various settings━ both indoor and outdoor, intimate and public" - KOHN GALLERY press release for Jonathan Lyndon Chase: Sheets  

Opening Reception: Friday, June 1, 7-10 PM
