FREQUENCIES

July 21st – August 20th, 2022

Opening Thursday, July 21st from 6-8 pm at 312 Bowery

 

The Hole is excited to announce Jackie Head’s debut Solo Show, Frequencies. Crafted from slip-cast porcelain components that are designed using a myriad of pattern-making methods, Jackie Head (b. 1991, Indianapolis, IN) creates large-scale wall works with eye-catching colors and intricate compositions. Made up of hundreds of small units, these ceramic panoramas envelop the viewer in an other-worldly geography.

With an eye on minimalism and geometric abstraction, Head creates these works through personal systems: beginning with simple grids, patterns and shapes, she whips things up to a high degree of complexity, describing herself as “the creator of her own organized chaos.” The close consideration of the viewer is rewarded by the surprises and patterns that lie within the work; using forms that draw from our pasts, our imagination can drift into a reverie. The ceramic medium is both highlighted and hidden; from afar the medium is confounding and foreign, but up close subtle glaze drips squeeze between crevices, delicious and naughty.

Jackie Head grew up in Indianapolis, IN where her interest in ceramics began in high school. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts, with an emphasis in Ceramics, and a Bachelor of Science in Arts Management from Indiana University Bloomington in 2014. Her exploration in creating slip-cast wall tiles and working with tessellations began during her study abroad in China in the Summer of 2014, where she worked at the Pottery Workshop in Jingdezhen. Prior to attending graduate school, Jackie pursued art residencies at The Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, MT, and the Morean Center for Clay in St. Petersburg, FL. She completed her MFA in Ceramic Art in 2022 at the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University.
