Shape Shifters: ACME. presents the work by Brinkerhoff, Michelle Carla Handel, and Damien Meade
Michelle Carla Handel, We're Not Made of Wood, 2013. Silicone rubber, fabric, polyfill, urethane foam, 26 x 18 x 4 1/2 inches.
LOS ANGELES, CA.- ACME. presents an exhibition of recent works by Jason Brinkerhoff, Michelle Carla Handel, and Damien Meade. All three artists' work reference bodily forms and sensual surfaces. Their work presents three different aspects of abstraction derived from the human body.

Jason Brinkerhoff is exhibiting a selection of small works on paper that portray the female form elegantly abstracted with curvilinear shapes and bold colors. Brinkerhoff creates his figures using graphite, colored pencil, wax pastel and collage elements onto found, aged paper. The small drawings reference early Modernist painters and the use of antique paper gives the works an overall patina. Jason Brinkerhoff is a self-taught artist that lives and works in Menlo Park, California.

Michelle Carla Handel's sculptures are a smart balance of humor and sexuality. Using a variety of materials such as silicone rubber, urethane plastic, fabric, plaster, and wood, her sculptures take on soft, bulbous shapes that reference human anatomy. While the plasticity of the forms and the fleshy colors make the sculptures very vulnerable and intimate, Handel also juxtaposes bright pops of color, giving the sculptures a playful element. Michelle Carla Handel received her MFA at Claremont Graduate University, and she currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.

Damien Meade's paintings are richly layered spilling over the edges, yet the surfaces are smooth and sensuous. All the paintings are oil on linen over board. One grouping of paintings features simplified, mysterious female silhouettes, while another series of paintings depicts fleshy, knotted networks. While the paintings are made up of satin-like brushstrokes, the finished images seem to portray illusions of reflections possibly captured by color photography. Damien Meade received his MFA at the Chelsea College of Art in London. Born in Ireland, Meade currently lives and works in London, and exhibits his work internationally.
