"Gallery 114 is pleased to present a two-person exhibition of Portland artists Jeffrey Fuchs and Sharon Servilio, on view February 2 - 25, 2023. An opening reception will be held on February 2, 5-8pm, and an artist talk on February 11, 3pm.

How do we locate ourselves in time and space? Points on a map exert a psychic pull on us, whether through lived experience, family of origin, ancestry, or a lineage of artistic influences we've never met. What does distance mean in a hyperconnected, context-collapsed world, and how is our perspective mediated when we are a nation or a neighborhood away? Some places take on a mythical quality or represent something lost, and others we distance ourselves from, only to be drawn back later in life. How do we hold this constellation while remaining present, engaged, and in relationship with our time and place in this moment?


Jeffrey Fuchs paints abstract expressionist work using acrylic paints, charcoal, and graphite, on canvas and paper in the style pioneered in New York in the 1940s and 50s. His work is soulful, using elaborate marks, bold colors, visual texture, and strong composition to express feelings and emotions the viewer can feel, especially when viewing the work in person.

Sharon Servilio constructs diorama-like paper reliefs that are collaged, sculpted, and painted with gouache, forming intricate miniature worlds that layer her identity, ancestry and upbringing with mythology, ecology and politics. Influenced by science fiction, she composts her religious and cultural indoctrination into new configurations, in search of fractal escape hatches and spiraling exit ramps from monolithic narratives."
