Louise Bonnet and Adam Silverman Have "Entanglements" at Frank Lloyd Wright's Hollyhock House
Entanglements: Louise Bonnet and Adam Silverman at Hollyhock House is the first artist intervention at the UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first formal collaboration for the Los Angeles-based couple. In dialogue with the site, Bonnet’s paintings and drawing and Silverman’s ceramics engage the house’s 100-year history as a platform for artists and experimentation. The new works will be installed in Hollyhock House’s public rooms where Aline Barnsdall’s celebrated art collection was once on display.
Known for her portraits of exaggerated proportions and grotesque features, Bonnet continually explores emotions of melancholy, loneliness, nostalgia and grief in her works on canvas or paper. Silverman is among the most dynamic practitioners dedicated to ceramics today and is known for his sculptural vessels and richly textured glazes. He brings an architect’s sense of structure to his objects and utilizes personal and experimental techniques to glaze and fire his works.
The exhibition is organized by Abbey Chamberlain Brach, Curator at Hollyhock House. Special thanks to Galerie Max Hetzler.
