Dimensions Variable and Site95 present Plot by Jude Broughan

Sep 6 - Oct 20, 2014

This is Broughan’s first exhibition in Miami. The ten works in Plot are striking juxtapositions of structure and surface that alternate between the figurative and the abstract. Layering photographs between vinyl, leather, and mesh, and sewing the printed images directly to the fabric’s surface, Broughan’s playful arrangements highlight her materials’ diverse qualities and associations.

A garden, a small piece of ground, a dramatic narrative, the planning of a course. A recurrent subject in Plot, and in Broughan’s work in general, is that process of understanding one place, one time – and, by extension, one state of being – is through an allusion to myriad alternatives. We locate ourselves with close and constant reference to memory and imagination, interpreting our surroundings according to their examples. Jude Broughan is a New Zealand-born artist based in Brooklyn.
