Davina Semo: Treasury

    March 4-April 15, 2023

    Jessica Silverman is pleased to announce Davina Semo: Treasury, the third solo exhibition at the gallery by the Los Angeles-based artist, opening March 4 and on view through April 15, 2023 in the gallery’s second-floor space. Semo’s sculptural practice places the industrial in tension with delicate emotional states, traversing the human condition through a chain of material encounters. Later this year, Semo will be included in The Sky’s the Limit at the National Museum of Women in Arts (NMWA) as one of 12 sculptors featured in this inaugural exhibition opening on October 21, 2023.

    The gallery exhibition will feature the artist’s well-known cast bronze bells, acrylic mirrors and patinated bronze reliefs and debut a new series of woven stainless steel and mirror work. Titled Kinship (2023), a steel mesh is adorned with scattered, playfully-colored painted aluminum letters that suggest the shared malleability between language and physical material. Reflections morph and transform amongst a fantastic blur of light, shadow and vernacular abstraction.
