Welcome to Ladder Art Space, where creativity flourishes and artists’ voices resonate through captivating exhibitions. As the year draws to a close, we’re thrilled to present our final showcases of 2023, featuring two exceptional artists, Manasee Jog and Lauren V Morehouse.
VEILED BY MEMORY: Manasee Jog Manasee Jog’s artistry is a reflection of her multidimensional identity as a visual artist, designer, educator, and researcher. Her exhibition, “Veiled by Memory,” invites you on an introspective journey into the interwoven realms of materiality, memory, and collaboration.
Through a captivating selection of artworks, Manasee intertwines her diverse memories, offering a visual discourse on how past experiences can be artistically shaped through metaphor and materiality. Her prints, crafted meticulously through a layered process, serve as visual translations of unnamed emotions and autobiographical narratives. The controlled chaos in her process produces serendipitous, single-edition monoprints that echo stories of familial flashbacks, emotional reminiscences, and otherworldly messages.
The prints, born from a collaborative and experiential approach to printmaking, are a testament to Manasee’s profound exploration of embodied memory. Each piece encapsulates a profound narrative, inviting viewers to delve into the nuanced layers of her artistry.
ARTISTS AS CREATORS: Lauren V Morehouse Lauren V Morehouse’s artistic realm encompasses textiles, performance, and installations. In her exhibition, “Artists as Creators,” she beautifully magnifies the essence of the artist in an era where the value of art and its creators is a topic of societal discourse.
Lauren’s artistry humanizes these conversations by spotlighting artists as individuals within her work’s context. “Artists as Creators” presents a series of portraits featuring artists she admires, showcasing them alongside the tools integral to their creative processes. Offering a ‘behind-the-scenes’ glimpse into the world of creation, Lauren pays homage to the meticulous craftsmanship and dedication each artist pours into their work.
Her intricate artwork, composed of thousands of stitches, celebrates and acknowledges artists while emphasizing the significance of the artistic process—a process often overshadowed by the final product.
