GRAY SPACE: 2015-16 Emerging Artist Award Solo Exhibition

Swan Coach House is pleased to present GRAY SPACE the work of Kelly Kristin Jones, winner of the 2015-16 Emerging Artist Award!

April 15 - May 26, 2016

About GRAY SPACE:

The construction site is the embodiment of GRAY SPACE, 
characterized by ambiguity and openness. Situated between
otherwise defined areas of the city, it bears witness to what was and what may be. Jones documents a rite of passage: a temporary urbanscape which is no longer one thing but not quite another.

Plastic sheeting, installed to protect and manage detritus at
construction sites, allows for a new photographic representation of the landscape. The sites’ transitional nature, part material/part immaterial, is clearly rendered within the shadowy and blurred abstract photographs. Jones captures a state between destruction and new life. 

Atlanta, a city which destroys to build anew, forces a continually reconsidered identity. Being surrounded and upended by a shifting GRAY SPACE has an emotional effect. The concrete alteration of the city affects the psyche. GRAY SPACE encourages contemplation of both a physical and metaphysical transformation.

Studio Practice

I'm continuing to look for ways to document/acknowledge/reposition vacant lots across Southeastern cities.... so now, fruit?

Hmm. Maybe.
