Artists Kathy Miller and Judith Christensen, "Life Lines" exhibition at Rose Gallery at Francis Parker School, San Diego

‘Life Lines’  is an exhibition showcasing the work of Kathy Miller and Judith Christensen. The show, which takes place within the light and airy space of Rose Art Gallery on the campus of Francis Parker School leaves its mark in several ways.  Familiar found objects tug on our memories, and draw us into the vocabulary and simplicity of these well crafted works. Miller’s use of recognizable objects of a mannequin, bedsprings, ceramic hands, bits of horse hair, hand spun text, metal, wire and fabric are tools Miller uses to transform into visual poetry that is both elegant and intimate.  Christensen uses language together with self-created books,  found dictionaries and texts to create house structures, paper doll dresses and other sculptural pieces that illicit personal memories in the mind of viewers and engage us in a dialog with ourselves about its meaning. Miller and Christensen’s works have an affinity to the assemblage and sculpture works of  mid-twentieth century artists Joseph Cornell and Louise Nevelson whose simple found and created materials of wood, plastic and metal create an extended linage into the hands of contemporary artists.
This exhibition runs through January 17th, however the Rose Gallery is closed from
December 21 – January 5th.  Hours are 8:00 am – 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
