April First Friday Art Walk –
‘Sojourn’ at The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery

New Work By Sage Tucker-Ketcham and Dana Heffern

Curated By Wylie Sofia Garcia and Christy Mitchell

April 7 – 29, 2017

Opening Reception: First Friday Art Walk April 7, 5-9pm

‘Flat House’ by Dana Heffern, photography

Statement on ‘Soujourn’:

Temporality is the theme that unites new work by artists Sage Tucker-Ketcham and Dana Heffern. Evoking a sense of impermanence and longing these artists explore in painting and photographic media the double edge of loneliness: what it means to want to be alone and what it means to feel lonely. Tucker-Ketcham’s work focuses on the spatial relationships of objects in the form of a dialogue between entry-less houses and the manicured landscape. Where in Heffern’s, photographs ask the viewer to engage in categorizing the mundane to bring meaning to the otherwise overlooked landscape. In the duality of ‘Soujourn’, the artists use the landscape as a parallel between introspection and fantasy. This reflects that what one sometimes desires is not often the reality of what one experiences.

‘Lonely House’ by Sage Tucker-Ketcham, oil

Sage Tucker Ketcham’s new works are small, intimate and tangible oil paintings on stretched canvas. They’re primarily focused on using color and light to create balance and blur the line between observation and the abstraction of nature. Rolling hills, barns, houses, clouds, trees and the transition of season are part of each painting, not of an exact place but a reference to a place. They are personal narratives, a timeline and a reference to relationships, and a fantasy of place and a way of being. Each small painting is portable and becomes a personal object. They are an efficient cluster of communities in relation to the intentional quiet.

‘Broom’ by Dana Heffern, photography

Dana Heffern’s photographic work is a study of solitary places, overlooked snow detritus, and forgotten moments in time within winter. As a witness, Heffern testifies on behalf of the ignored and forgotten objects and landscapes that present to us in our everyday. The ordinary thing is often viewed as ugly or unworthy, but she sees the interstitial spaces people inhabit as divine. These spaces may go unrecognized, but they are the very glue that tethers us, as we sleepwalk through moments to whatever distraction comes next– these spaces will still be here as a lonely support that carries us from mundane reality to chosen fantasy.
