HOT HOUSE curated by Eva Conrad
As late capitalism has slowly drifted toward a handmade movement, alongside the many have begun to indulge back in hand-making. Hot House brings together a diverse group of artists whose work is part of the current resurgence of the pattern and decoration movement in response to the white washing minimalism of gentrification aesthetics. Instead, maximalism and vibrant color provide an aesthetic of optimism that gestures back to traditionally more democratic forms of folk art and craft. Hot House features both local and national artists.

ACTS OF KINDNESS for Print + Object
Print & Object is honored to announce the release of a new series of sculptural works by Western North Carolina-based artist Angela Finney. Mighty trophies of unexpected proportions, Finney’s sculptures playfully contradict notions of order, scale, and structure in celebration of precarious pairings, imaginative anatomy, and energetic color.
Derived in part from found objects, Finney’s sculptures are imbued with layers of material history. Surface texture and slight imperfections enliven each work with a lineage of past life, a patina of personality. Partnered with newly designed forms, this union of found and made objects creates a juxtaposition of the readymade and hand-crafted. Installed together, these sculptures form a community that speaks to Finney’s interest in social nature, questioning competition, and the sense of self.
MATERIALIZED solo exhibition
Through the fascination of the humanistic act of collecting competitive awards, Finney creates abstract geometric objects of merit for a la la land where humans forget greed and power, and aim to simply be better people in a society where community comes first. Playful, bold and humble badges, trophies, and emblems in blocks of color speak truth in their materiality as visual reminders of lifelong achievements.
