Exhibition Dates: 
Jan 5, 2011 to Feb 6, 2011

Root Division and Heart are pleased to announce a series of exhibitions of Root Division affiliate artists at Heart gallery and wine bar. Beginning in January 2011, Heart will exhibit a rotating schedule of solo and group exhibitions exclusively by Root Division affiliate artists, with a portion of proceeds benefitting Root Divisions programming.

The inaugural show in this series presents two former Root Division studio artists, Korean painter Hyun Sun Jo and Bay Area local Jenna North. Periodicity examines how each of these abstract painters address the relationship between natural and industrial environments. Jo's monumental canvases borrow shapes from modern architecture and the the urban landscape, juxtaposed with organic and gestural marks, while North uses industrial enamel paint in her geometric, grey-tone paintings, which elicit energy felds of pattern formed by frequency waves in nature. Both painters speak to the human fnagling of natural cycles and formations and the resulting periodicity, or patterns, created by the natural world coinciding with elements of human design and technology.
