Jacquelyne Boe & David Janesko, Gerardo Rosales, and Holly Veselka Mine the Gap

Mine the Gap presents new work by Jacquelyne Boe and David Janesko, Gerardo Rosales, and Holly Veselka, created during their 2019/21 Artist Studio Program residencies at Lawndale. Through disparate mediums and for different ends, the artists collectively harness the quiet yet potent power of abstraction, layering, and transference in their experimentations with expression. The gap between reality and the represented offers fertile ground to mine the fleeting, fragmentary, and fragile. Reducing the legibility of referents limits obvious and immediate readings of the artists’ work, instead encouraging close viewing and a multiplicity of meanings. About the Artist Studio Program The nine-month Artist Studio Program supports three artists annually with an honorarium, project grant, studio space, and curatorial support, culminating with an exhibition of the artists’ new works. Special thanks to Andrea Allen, installers Jonathan Clark and David Cobb, and Lawndale volunteers Nadia Al-Khalifa, Karen Eisele, Jeanne Jones, Cindee Travis Klement, Erica Lee, Stefania Lenna, Ellie Mix, Francesca Paradiso, Ellen Ray, Niman Rosales, Jose Gregorio Saldivia, Juan Sanchez, Verny Sanchez, and Linda Wu for their assistance in the production of Gerardo Rosales' mural, The Banquet.
