New works on paper by Marfa-based artist (and CineMarfa co-founder) Jennifer Lane at the Marfa Book Company. Opening Thursday, 7 March 2013 from 6-8pm. From MBCo:

We’re presenting b.c., featuring new work by Jennifer Lane. Lane works in a variety of media, including film, guache, and collage. The works on paper are often marked by metamorphic qualities, and I mean metamorphic in the Ovidian sense. Bodies of mushrooms, flowers, birds or moths become bodies of women and vice versa. Or the same may sprout limbs, wings or stalks of one or the other. She also makes strong singular forms that consist of parts of any or all of these. And there are solid painted forms that maintain organic resemblance but without figural aspects. Have a look at her work at her website, if you’d like to see what I’m trying to say. There is also a page of recommended reading, which is very cool. The show will be in the gallery until April 7th.
