Eidolon Vessel

Lauren YS

Gallery Hours Saturday July 31st / Aug 7th 11am-3pm
Closing Reception Saturday August 21st 11am-4pm, w/ workshop from 2-4pm

Heron Arts welcomes Lauren YS for a solo exhibition, opening Saturday July 10th. Eidolon Vessel refers to the myriad physical vessels depicted in the artist's paintings, but also the mind and body as vessels for trans-generational storytelling. Rendered in the artist’s signature style of hyper-chroma Sci–Fi futurism and asian iconography, "Vessel" is a meditation on loss, heritage, links between women, isolation, death and identity.

Tree no. 1

Thomas Jackson

June 22nd 2018

Heron Arts is pleased to announce "Tree no. 1," a new installation by Thomas Jackson. Expanding on ideas he has explored in his "Emergent Behavior" photographic series, Jackson's piece will juxtapose organic and manufactured materials to promote fresh perspectives on the complex balance between natural and manmade systems. The piece will feature a 15-foot "Sango-Kaku” (Coral Bark Japanese Maple) surrounded by floating LED grow lights and plastic take out containers. While Jackson frequently works with organic materials in outdoor settings, this will be the first time he has incorporated living flora into an indoor sculpture. The work presses the viewer not only to contemplate our dysfunctional relationship with the natural landscape, but also to envision a sustainable future in which natural and man-made systems are integrated and intertwined, and more resilient as a result. The exhibition will also feature a number of prints from the “Emergent Behavior” series.
