Arts On Main is excited to host an exhibition by ceramic and mixed media installation artist Jeannie Hulen as one of the first artists in our state-of-the-art galleries. Hulen’s exhibition titled Gibberish: Mineral Bilateral Stimulation is a part of a larger series of “Gibberish” installations that according to Hulen, examine global environmental issues and visually investigate the complex and troubling relationships between human beings and the natural world. Conceptually, her work comments on society’s mass cultural production’s mimicry of nature with materials that are cheap fake junk, which will one day reside in landfills. Hulen notes that “Ironically, replacing plastic with ceramics returns the forms to a beautiful state.” Hulen intends to “circumvent overburdened themes such as environmentalism, in favor of a non-linear, fantastical position calling attention to less evident aspects of the relationships between people and the natural world, including intellectual, psychological, and numinous facets of this symbiosis.” You may view the exhibit on display in Gallery C through Mar 31, 2022.
