Exhibition | Ebony G. Patterson | … to dig between the cuts, beneath the leaves, below the soil…

For …to dig between the cuts, beneath the leaves, below the soil…, Patterson has moved into the undergrowth of a garden gone awry. Luscious, bright plants bursting with untameable life lure the viewer closer. Amidst the vegetation, objects are unearthed — discarded shoes and children’s toys create an uncanny feeling, whilst beneath the leaves are twinkling eyes and silhouetted limbs. With an eerie absence of a body, the scene slowly reveals itself as ominous. This marks the Jamaican artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery and runs concurrent with …while the dew is still on the roses…, her major touring exhibition that debuted at Pérez Art Museum Miami (November 2018) and is currently on view at Speed Art Museum (Louisville, KY) through January 5, 2020.
