Ernest Newman Contemporary is pleased to announce “Domicile,” a group show presenting the work of Sarah Hollars, Kurt Lightner, and Heeseop Yoon. Each of the artist's work references his or her memories and connections to places and objects that are simultaneously deeply personal and communal. The artists' connections to their physical subjects serve as the vehicle for their individual and stylistic explorations and suggest a qualitative shift in the way we define domestic space.
Sarah Hollars asks the question “Where does the singular experience/memory stand in relation to the universal?” Treated with equal weight, images originating from both the shared and the private are forced to take part in the creation of an alternative dialogue with history and meaning where the collective is not privileged over the individual or vice versa.
In Kurt Lightner’s acrylic on paper “Cathedrals of work” series, Lightner focuses on how the role of work and labor formed his family's Midwestern farm-life identity. Visually referencing his family's agrarian past, the series depicts the interiors of his grandparents’ utilitarian barn structures, drawing parallels and disparities between the rituals performed within them to those of baroque cathedrals.
Heeseop Yoon’s mural-scaled “drawing” uses black masking tape to detail the clutter of objects found in basements, workshops and storage spaces. While referencing photographs of the environments, the drawings take on an exaggerated, organic life of their own, questioning one's memory and relationship to specific places and material items.

Sarah Hollars was selected as a “jury picks” for the book 100 painters of tomorrow a project of Beers Contemporary in London which showcases 100 young artists from all over the world. The book has been released in London and will be released in New York later this fall (www.100paintersoftomorrow.com)

Hunter College is pleased to present American Girls, a solo exhibition by Sarah Hollars. The exhibition consists of small mixed media drawings on velum, each stemming from the question: “Where does the singular experience/memory stand in relation to the universal?”
In American Girls, Hollars culls imagery from deeply personal memories as well as public sources including the internet and print materials. Animals, houses, pattern, the female figure, and highly saturated hues coalesce as the individual and common are woven together on the page. Treated with equal weight, images originating from both the shared and the private are forced to take part in the creation of an alternative dialogue with history and meaning where the collective is not privileged over the individual or vice versa.
Born in 1983 in southeastern Oregon, Hollars received an MFA in Painting from Hunter College, New York; a BFA in Painting from the University of Oregon, Eugene; and a BA in Interdisciplinary Art from the University of Washington, Seattle. Currently Hollars lives in Brooklyn, New York and is an adjunct professor at Hunter College, New York.
Gallery will be open Monday - Friday, 2:00-6:00 pm
Viewing by appointment for non-Hunter individuals
