Join us Friday, January 24th from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. for an opening receptionto celebrate French artistSANDRINE KERN: HALF WAY TO REALITY AND A LITTLE BIT LOST.The exhibition is on view from January 24 - March 7, 2020. This is Kern's first solo exhibition with MJFA. The public is invited and the artist will be present.
HALF WAY TO REALITY AND A LITTLE BIT LOSTintroduces Sandrine Kern’s uniquely ethereal, other-worldly paintings that integrate aspects of figuration and abstraction. At first glance, the works suggest traditional landscape, but the idea quickly dissolves into notions of abstraction as her indistinguishable, evocative settings are purposefully clouded or hazed to communicate a fading memory or transmit a feeling of a place that is imagined in the artist’s mind.
Sandrine Kern lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She was born in Paris, France where she received an MFA with Honors from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts. Recent solo and group exhibitions include William Shearburn Gallery, St Louis, MO, Thomas Paul Fine Art, LA, CA, Nikola Rukaj Gallery, Toronto, Canada and Gail Harvey Gallery, Santa Monica, CA., OK Harris Gallery, among others. Kern was elected for membership of the Foundation Taylor in Paris, France in June 2016. Her work is to be found in numerous private collections including The Mitchell Collection, Boutros Boutros-Ghali, David Schwimmer, and Lisa Kudrow.
