Jennifer Moses has Elbow Room

Elbow Room is an exhibition of paintings and wall collages that Moses works on simultaneously. The paintings and collages are both visceral and humorous and they speak and refer to each other across her studio walls. The collages are free to meander and engage the white of the wall, they expand and constrict at will. While the paintings harness that edgeless quality in a crowded conglomerate of shapes that work their way up to the edges of the picture plane.

Congested or expansive, the qualities that both have in common are the relationship between flat shapes and texture, and the surprise of cutouts rearranged and layered together.
