Paradigm Gallery Presents “Division of Birds” — Paradigm Gallery + Studio

When: Friday, August 26th – Sunday, September 18th, gallery hours vary
Where: Paradigm Gallery + Studio, 746 S. 4th St

Paradigm Gallery + Studio is pleased to present “Division of Birds”, a group exhibition curated by founder and editor-in-chief of Colossal Christopher Jobson on view from August 26 to September 18, 2022. Division of Birds brings eleven exciting artists to Paradigm for the very first time, including Roberto Benavidez, Lola Dupré, Drew Mosley, Chris Maynard, Dina Brodsky, Calvin Ma, Fio Silva, Mike Stilkey, Felicia Chiao, Gigi Chen, and Megan Zaniewski.

A prominent subject for artists throughout human history, depictions of birds are among the first images of recorded history, appearing frequently on the walls of the caves of Lascaux and at other prehistoric sites and on findings from pottery to parchment and engravings to jewelry. Considering the allure of soaring flight, the stunning mixture of color and song, and an incredible variety of behaviors, birds have served prominently in artists’ practices, often serving as the central focus.

Collected in “Division of Birds”, these eleven artists use humor and realism and science and fantasy to bring to life some 35 birds in the form of paint, collage, paper sculpture, books, ceramic, embroidery, pen, pencil, and repurposed feathers. Through these varied aesthetic forms, we celebrate the vast array of avians all around us, both real and imagined.
