Hays — solo exhibition

Strong in the Broken Places
New works by Jodi Hays

@ Threesquared
427 Chestnut Street | Nashville, TN 37203
Opening Party: Feb. 10th, 6 – 9 PM

threesquared presents an exhibition of new works by Nashville-based artist Jodi Hays. Strong in the Broken Places will feature recent oil paintings and works on paper.

In this exhibition, Hays uses physical space as metaphor for psychological space. Through a deft and deliberate balance of line and form, she leverages images one might associate with marking transitions or temporal site: construction fences, festoons, and caution tape. The work’s constant thread is an inquiry into how quotidian images can explore personal circumstance and transcend themselves.  A process the artist terms “a kind of aesthetic redemption.”
