Laine Justice | June 2nd 2018

June 2 - July 15 2018

Animal Animal Animal!

Opening Reception June 2nd 2018 5-7pm.

Laine Justice is a painter, sculptor, collagist, and story teller, who currently lives and works here in Sonoma County, California.

With a keen interest in materials science and traditional studio practice, her work is characterized by dense layered mark making, producing thickly tangled internal narratives. Chiefly working with powdered pigments and oil on silk, she frequently incorporates gold leaf, sections of fine graphite drawing and individually placed fragments of antique glitter with painstaking attention to detail. Landscape elements are people with eyes, ears, and limbs of half-hidden animal composite creatures.

Justice received her BFA in painting with honors from Pratt Institute, School of Fine Arts, Brooklyn, New York.

Her work has been shown in San Francisco, Costa Rica, New York, Santa Fe, and Sonoma — more recently at SFAC, Fouladi Projects, Jules Maeght Gallery, and Sonoma Valley Museum of Art.
