On Friday, May 22, 2015 at 6PM, The Union™ studio + production is proud to feature Monument: a solo exhibition of paintings by Charis Renée Ammon. Monument encapsulates imitations of domestic relics; sculpted canvasses masquerading as objects from the artists domicile. “ I create renditions of objects near my thought-life. The subjects of my paintings are removed from their context, isolated from their purpose…vestiges of my memory, existing as artifacts of the doing and undoing of each other.” Sharing dialogue with Grabners’ formalism dictated by the domestic space as studio, Ammon finds her work derivative of said space. The gallery becomes a reliquary for the home, questioning agoraphobic attachments or need to immortalize the delicate transience of the artists’ space.
