In her solo project Hollow places court in Ash-Tree Wood, Jessica Stockholder has made several works from the wood of a 125-year-old ash tree that formerly grew in the Aldrich’s sculpture garden. The exhibition includes several discrete sculptural works within a site-responsive installation. The major elements in the exhibition are two large freestanding sculptures that resemble folding screens. Fabricated from boards cut from the wood of the tree, they were conceived by Stockholder as static armatures that she will activate with various types of paint, from auto lacquer to acrylic, visually suggesting walls (or a gallery) filled with pictures. The forms represented reference eyes (among other things), mirroring the viewer’s gaze and suggesting both the accumulated experience of the tree and the fleeting experience of the viewer.
Laumeier Sculpture Park, St. Louis presents an exhibition of recent sculpture by Jessica Stockholder. The exhibition, which opens February 12, features eleven sculptures full of quirks and unexpected materials. Stockholder’s work engages elements of painting, sculpture and architecture with objects more commonly found in backyards and living rooms. Her playful nature is reflected in the name of the exhibition, Grab grassy this moment your I’s. The title offers an abstract grammatical puzzle emblematic of her work that strives to change how we see common objects and materials. The exhibition includes Stockholder’s work, Flooded Chambers Maid, 2009-10, installed in Laumeier’s Children’s Sculpture Garden in October 2010. The long-term loan was commissioned by the Madison Square Park Conservancy, was previously exhibited in Manhattan’s Madison Square Park. The work will provide a platform for future performances, readings and children’s programs.

New Sparkle for an Abstract Ensemble By HOLLAND COTTER SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. — In the echo chamber that is the New York art world, where one voice can give the illusion of being many, the crusading cry of late is “We need more painting!” As if there were a dearth. Is there? Walk through any of the city’s art museums, and what do see? Paintings everywhere. Visit contemporary galleries all over town, and what do you find? They’re painting packed. But still the cry goes on.
