Kianja Strobert Going on Foot at ZACH FEUER GALLERY

January 11, 2012

James Kalm strolled into the opening of Kianja Strobert’s debut show with this gallery moments before the doors closed. Strobert is a Yale graduate and is presenting two bodies of work, paintings and collage on paper, and floor bound sculptural pieces that employ pottery shards and threads of neon tubing. Though the texture and color of these works reflects the influence of Hans Hofmann’s New York School, there is also a hint of urban abjectness, and with the inclusion of chicken bones, tangles of thread and fruit peals, references to a folksy ghetto mojo.
