COOPER COLE is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new work from Jenine Marsh at our Richmond St. West location. This will mark Marsh’s fist exhibition with the gallery.

This face is a dog’s snout sniffing for garbage; Snakes nest in that mouth, I hear the sibilant threat. This face is a haze more chill than the arctic sea, Its sleepy and wobbling icebergs crunch as they go.

-Walt Whitman, Poem of Faces

Two strangers meet on a street. They are true strangers from non-overlapping zones: obverse and reverse. So strange in fact, that each word, expression and gesture appears as a short circuit, a superficial madness, as garbage in the wind. Without a shared language they are naked appearance alone. This kind of strangeness is not easily imagined as anything but monstrous and so the challenge for their brief encounter becomes the improvisation of a third language, a formalized language that can only ever communicate the complexly contentless event. Perhaps in this wriggling duel of dually complicit incomprehension a momentary wink is shared between them which, taken at face value, acknowledges a return to surfaces; a pure visibility that will always have a remainder of mutable ambiguity, a strangeness that stays strange.

Jenine Marsh utilizes common materials and simple processes to explore surface in sculptural form. The physical presence of her works, combined with their graphic flatness, encourage the viewer to consider them on both a two and three dimensional plane. This symbiotic relationship, combined with unconstrained human interaction, creates a exhibit where Marsh’s works emerge as unique characters that embody the physical space.
