Romer Young Gallery is pleased to present Anna Sew Hoy’s first solo exhibition in San Francisco, Tissues and Trench Coats. There will be an opening reception for the artist on Thursday, February 16th, from 18:00-21:00.
Anna Sew Hoy’s work celebrates the beauty, form, and materiality of sculpture while simultaneously suffusing energy into the poetic and emotional “presence” of objects. Sewing together painted ceramic forms with the inconspicuous things that are woven into our daily rituals, Sew Hoy explores the relationship between people and the emotional intention that is [sometimes unknowingly] invested into everyday objects. In Tissues and Trench Coats, ordinary objects that have specific associations and functions are beautifully transformed in such a way that the once familiar object-functional becomes compelling, complex, and auratic.
