PODCAST: Dornith Doherty in Outside of New York - Episode 19

October 22, 2018 - Craig Gould

Dornith Doherty is an artist whose work stimulates conversations around the world’s ever-changing ecology. A native of Houston, she obtained her BFA from Rice University and her MFA in Photography from Yale. She currently resides in Southlake, Texas and is Distinguished Research Professor at the University of North Texas, where she has been on the faculty since 1996.

Doherty’s work has been exhibited extensively domestically and abroad and can be found in the permanent collections of prominent institutions such as the Amon Carter Museum of American ArtCrystal Bridges Museum of American Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. Her project entitled “Archiving Eden” looked at the infrastructure around the preservation of the world’s plant life through the utilization of seed banks, as well as looking at the inner beauty of the seeds themselves. That work drew the attention of major media outlets and resulted in a host of artist talks around the world, including TEDx Monterey.

I recently sat down with Dornith at her current show at Holly Johnson Gallery in Dallas where we discussed growing up in Houston, the rigors of the Yale MFA, man’s impact on the environment, photographing the world seed bank vault in the arctic, backyard coyotes and the future of the banana...

PRESS RELEASE: Jackie Tileston - Instructions for Dissolution in November

September 17, 2018 - Holly Johnson Gallery

Holly Johnson Gallery in Dallas is pleased to announce the opening of Jackie Tileston: Instructions for Dissolution, an exhibition of new paintings and works on paper. An opening reception for the artist will be held November 17, from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. The exhibition continues through Saturday, January 26, 2019. 

Jackie Tileston's paintings are heterotopic spaces in which diverse strategies and nomadic thinking create complex images that investigate the contemporary sublime and states of being. Tileston (b. Manila, Philippines) spent her childhood as an itinerant “Third Culture Kid”, living in the Philippines, India, England, and France, before moving to the US.  This intercultural mix and sense of belonging everywhere and nowhere has become the template for making abstract, visionary paintings. She has developed her own pictorial vocabulary and symbolism, a semiotics that incorporates references to an eclectic variety of sources:  geometric yantras, fragments of Ukiyo-e prints, fractals, digital photos, Chinese landscape, quantum physics, Western Romanticism, and patterns from around the world all feed the work.  Tileston creates hybrid, layered and contemplative spaces that explore ways to materialize the ephemeral through exuberant, grotesque, raucous, and baroquely differentiated forms...

PRESS RELEASE: Margo Sawyer Unveils New Installation at UHV

August 31, 2018 - University of Houston - Victoria

Visitors to the University of Houston-Victoria will be captivated by a new installation by internationally known artist Margo Sawyer. “Synchronicity of Color: Victoria” now hangs from the ceiling in the three-story high atrium of the University North building.

The artwork consists of seven hand-painted laminated glass elements suspended from the ceiling.  Positioning of the artwork adjacent to the staircase allows observers to experience the rich color, textured patterns, subtle movement and the contemplative nature of the artwork from varying perspectives.

 “They unite an array of complex and unexpected unions of color,” said Sawyer, a 2018 Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellow. She describes it as “an optical color play, transparency, reflectivity, luminosity, physicality, materiality, perceptual, material and the psychological effects of color as a window into our emotions.”
