JDJ at Dallas Art Fair Online 2020

At Dallas Art Fair 2020, JDJ presents an intergenerational conversation between four artists whose work occupies the space between abstraction and figuration.

Mark Barrow & Sarah Parke's collaborative art practice focuses on the process of weaving and its relationship to visual systems. They are known for their intricate paintings on hand-woven linen in which the painted surfaces interact with the color, texture and pattern woven into the fabric. Mark Barrow (b. 1982) and Sarah Parke (b.1981) live and work in New York City. Their work has been recently exhibited at JDJ | The Ice House, Garrison, NY; La Capella Cavassa, Saluzzo, Italy; Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University, Waltham, MA; White Columns, New York; ZERO..., Milan; Galerie Almine Rech, Paris and Brussels; and Elizabeth Dee, New York. 

Athena LaTocha's practice explores the relationship between natural and manmade landscapes, inspired by her Native American heritage, her upbringing in Alaska, and Earthworks artists of the 1960s and 1970s. LaTocha (b. 1969, Anchorage, AK, lives and works in Peekskill, NY. She is a Fall 2019 recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation residency award. She recently opened an installation at the New Orleans Museum of Art, and is currently working on three solo institutional exhibitions set to open in 2020-21.

Zoe Avery Nelson's paintings capture a sense of movement and fluidity. Colors slide from one hue to another, and shapes shift from abstraction toward a sense of swirling figuration. Much like their paintings, Nelson embodies a sense of fluidity, as their relationship to gender exists outside the normative male/female binary. The formal language embedded in their practice visually traverses their feeling of identity. Nelson (b. 1983 Rhinebeck, NY, lives and works in Brooklyn, NY) received an MFA from Columbia University in 2009. They are a recipient of the prestigious Sharpe-Walentas Residency for 2019- 2020.

Susan Weil (b. 1930, lives & works in New York, NY) came of age as an artist in the postwar period, studying under Josef Albers at Black Mountain College with Willem & Elaine de Kooning, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg & Cy Twombly. Although she has deep roots in the New York School of Art, her work defies easy categorization. Fascinated by sequential moments in time, she sets images in motion in unconventional ways. Weil came of age as an artist in the postwar period, studying under Josef Albers at Black Mountain College with Willem & Elaine de Kooning, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg & Cy Twombly.
