Art Omi

when is brunch is an exhibition of sculptures, paintings and objects in-between by Kianja Strobert, on view in the Newmark Gallery from March 20 - May 16, 2021. At first glance the artist presents a world of amusement. Bright colors, expressive marks and textured surfaces leap between objects that rest in haphazard configurations on the wall. In a short amount of time what emerges is a glimpse of an ideology in which material transitions, mark making and form simultaneously suggest the elevated, the quotidian and the utilitarian. Painting is not left to present only a window, but is discussed as a process that participates in the world of production and consumption.
