M+B is pleased to announce Mirror Window Door, an exhibition of new paintings by Los Angeles-based artist Kara Joslyn. This is Joslyn’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, and will run from September 18 through October 16, 2021. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, September 18, from 6:00 to 8:00pm.
In Mirror Window Door, Joslyn expands on her atlas of figures and spaces that merge the symbolic with the real. Primarily sourced from mid-century instructional booklets for making paper figurines, her enigmatic subjects remain anchored to forms in the material world. Through Joslyn’s deft rendering of surfaces, the folded, creased, and curved sheets of paper assume a metaphysical dimension while conveying the wonder of observable reality. The paintings capture the journey to a parallel plane of reality, where figures defy any straightforward interpretation.
