Jessica Silverman, San Francisco
2 October – 13 November
During the COVID-19 lockdown, Bay Area-based artist Woody De Othello created work that celebrates life, time and interiority. ‘Looking In’, Othello’s latest outing at Jessica Silverman in San Francisco, is as ludic and funky as his past exhibitions while further investigating elasticity and mutability in everyday forms. In this show, the artist’s recurring motifs of plants, flowers, mirrors, phones, light switches, clocks and body parts – depicted in ceramic sculptures, works on paper and paintings – deliver an experience akin to noticing the minutia of our daily lives while stuck at home during shelter-in-place orders for the better part of a year.
