CANDICE MADEY is pleased to announce the gallery’s second solo exhibition with LA-based Julia Haft-Candell, A Soft Grid, presenting new mixed media paintings that incorporate marble dust and bronze, sculpture in bronze and clay, and a large-scale work on paper. Throughout this exhibition and her work in general, a recurring lexicon traverses material form and connects the non corporeal and more ethereal aspects of her practice.

Dreamsong is pleased to announce Dissolving Margins, a two-person exhibition featuring sculpture by Julia Haft-Candell and recent paintings by Maria Kozak. The exhibition title references an Italian term central to Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan Novels ‘smarginatura,’ translated as ‘dissolving margins’ by Ann Goldstein, and described as “the sensation of moving a few fractions of a second into a person or a thing or a number of a syllable, violating its edges.”

Dissolving Margins highlights conceptual and formal reverberations between Kozak and Haft- Candell’s distinct practices. In particular, both artists undermine hard binaries by imagining hybrid forms. Kozak, working in oil paint, and Haft-Candell in ceramic, upend the delineation of stable categories through embracing ambiguity and porous borders. In sensuous oil paintings and ceramic sculptures that that trace the body while gesturing towards abstraction, forms seep, bleed and interlock through the alchemy of touch.
