For Katie Sinnott’s first exhibition with Night Gallery, she continues to build up, tear down, disguise, and illuminate the material of space. Her process is a painterly architectural manipulation, and the result may be the closest one can get to walking inside of a changing painting. Using paint, drywall, light, and other materials present in the space, Sinnott creates a continually shifting and utterly still dimension. Here, the sun sinks behind multiple horizon lines, materials can be upon and within in one moment, and a line may lead you, not to a restful destination, but back to another teetering blankness.
Katie Sinnott (b. 1983) received her MFA from UCLA in 2013, and holds degrees from UC Berkeley and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
