Hostler Burrows is pleased to announce Species, an exhibition by American artist and designer Jake Coan. This is Coan’s first solo presentation and will run from January 4th - February 13, 2024 in the project space of the Los Angeles gallery; an opening reception with the artist will take place on Thursday, January 4th from 5 - 7 pm.
The exhibition features a new series of sculptural lamps created across a variety of media. The works are delicately rendered in brass with stone supports and hand-made paper diffusers; some are cast in bronze or created from dried milkweed branches and rocks collected from the forest near Coan’s home and studio. Fitted with micro LEDs, Coan’s work occupies a liminal space between sculpture and functional object.
Jake Coan (b. 1991) grew up in the Hudson Valley, the son of an architect and potter. He graduated from Bard College with a BA in Studio Art and lives and works in Upstate, NY.
