February 12 – March 12, 2011
Steve Turner Contemporary is pleased to present Going Nowhere, a solo exhibition featuring new works by Los Angeles-based artist, Jenny Herrick. Through a series of gouache drawings, intaglio prints, video loops, and a laser-cut wood panel, Going Nowhere explores the futility of action. The show is comprised of objects whose forms deny their own potential, whose cyclical nature prevents progress, whose implied actions lead to their own demise and whose very existence are depictions of nonexistence.
Born in Los Angeles in 1975, Jenny Herrick earned a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design (1997) and an MFA from Yale (2003). She is a professor of fine art at Whittier College. This is her first solo exhibition with the gallery.
