Jason Sho Green and Victoria Shaheen

Entire, if tiny, worlds are conjured from found objects in Morton Fine Art’s “Reveries,” installations and more by Jason Sho Green & Victoria Shaheen. Green brings everyday stuff to life with small motors or simply the drafts that cause dangling objects to dance in midair. Mounted on the wall or on six scaffolds, the Japan-born Brooklynite’s pieces make elementary yet slightly ominous gestures. Two knives flick through space, a fishhook dangles and a wooden block, a face carved on the side, repeatedly traverses a prone body, each time almost hitting it. There’s a hint of slapstick to Green’s everyday-
surrealist vignettes.

Shaheen, too, works with commonplace things, but she employs them as molds for multiple porcelain pieces. She casts versions of Smurfs figurines, Darth Vader cups and miniature TV sets, all in ivory, pale pink and light green, and then stacks them into latter-day totems. The Corcoran-educated Detroiter also makes single-item sculptures, such as an ice cream cone topped by a scoop of ceramic green, combined with sheets of translucent acrylic that cast colored shadows. These add a few watery shades to Shaheen’s array of pop-culture pastels.

Jason Sho Green & Victoria Shaheen’s “Reveries” – editorial review in the Washington Post

Editorial Review


By Michael O’Sullivan
Friday, February 21, 2014

The exhibition title “Reveries” suggests gentle daydreaming in a field of flowers, but the sculptural installations on view in Morton Fine Art’s latest show, which opens Friday from 6 to 8 p.m., might evoke a slightly more angsty state of mind. Between Victoria Shaheen’s ceramics —- cast from found objects and street debris —- and Jason Sho Green’s robotic sculptural installation —- inspired by urban decay —- the show’s underlying theme of things falling apart might keep you up at night.

SPECIAL REPORT

SPRING ARTS PREVIEW

From music to dance, the arts are in bloom. Here are our picks for the season.

REVERIES: NEW WORK BY JASON SHO GREEN AND VICTORIA SHAHEEN

This may be the ticket for those with a taste for the surreal. Green’s sculptural installations, which incorporate toylike robotics, hover between twee and disturbing. Shaheen, a ceramicist, also walks a fine line between the accessible and the outré.

About JASON SHO GREEN (New York, b. Japan): 

Seamlessly blending a hybrid education which includes undergraduate studies in autonomous robotics and digital embedded systems at the University of Washington and a MFA degree in painting from the New York Academy of Art, JASON SHO GREEN’s work in Reveries evolved from drawings of a glorious city after ruin. He delves into a new world from the leftovers of human behavior, imagining what can be done with what is left behind. His robotic, electricity-powered installation explores an ecosystem built from found objects, spare motors, and wires that are constantly in flux.
