The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present new work by Joanna Powell. Lay Me in a Hot Bed and Try Not to Drown, Powell’s New York City debut, was inspired by the harrowing experience of returning to Dallas after her mother’s death. In this exhibition, Powell explores emotions that are universally felt in highly individualized ways. Everyone eventually grapples with the death of a loved one, but each person’s experience is unique. Using ceramic, photography and neon, Powell unpacks how those humid Dallas nights felt, trying to fall asleep despite the crush of emotion and thick summer air, and what it means to have common experiences without actually being able to share them.
