Kolman & Reeb Gallery is pleased to announce its next Project Space grantee exhibition, Emergence, by visual artist, Jodi Reeb. For the exhibition, Jodi plans to connect with the gallery space through a series of sculptures and site-specific installations that depict organic forms found in nature.

Jodi originally began working with the concepts she explores in Emergence during a workshop she attended four years ago, where she’d construct a temporary installation, then tear it down, every morning and afternoon. “I became intrigued with the idea of place and site-specific artworks, and ideas about economy of means as I worked through each installation using materials such as wire, tape, string, and newsprint,” she says. “I also became interested in the idea of the three-dimensional line, mark-making objects, and creating shadows on the wall. The Project Space grant has allowed me to take time out of my schedule to fully experiment with these ideas and bring them to fruition.”

Jodi intends to utilize the gallery’s cement columns, wood floor, and ceiling beams in order to “push the sculptures off the walls and into the space,” she explains. The materiality throughout the gallery, which also includes a brick back wall and sheetrock or drywall surfaces, has inspired Jodi, as have the gallery’s corners and flat surfaces. She hopes to use materials that have the ability to mimic nature such as tubing, tape, wax and wire that will be transformed into works that resemble branches or depict seed-pods.

“We’re thrilled to support Jodi in this new artistic endeavor through a Project Space grant,” says Anita Sue Kolman, partner of Kolman & Reeb Gallery. “As an artist, (a painter, printmaker, and Sculptor), Jodi has long been inspired by the forms found in nature. Now, with this exhibition, she’s exploring new materials and new spaces in which to create free-form assemblages that explore these organic shapes.”
