Catharine Clark Gallery presents Borderlinean exhibition of new paintings by Chester Arnold. On view from March 24 – May 5, 2018Borderline responds to urgent concerns around border politics, and how access to space is limited by physical and imaginary boundaries. Arnold’s paintings imagine a ruined landscape of deteriorating buildings, crumbling towers, and concrete walls defaced by graffiti and human detritus.

Arnold’s exhibition is complemented by a media room presentation of Andy Diaz Hope and Laurel Roth Hope’s mixed media installation, The Woulds. Commissioned by the Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco for the 2017 exhibition Jewish Folktales Retold: Artist as Maggid, the installation features a “forest” of tree-like sculptures made of wood, mirrors, and glass populated with ceramic birds. The artists note that “forests and trees populate a number of stories from folklore” as landscapes that invite a journey through “the unknown.”
