Jayme McLellan: Pleasing Nature

Boston Properties is pleased announce the June 11th opening at The Heurich Gallery of Jayme McLellan: Pleasing Nature, an exhibition featuring photographs by the Washington-based artist.

On View: June 11th – September 2nd, 2014, Monday – Friday, 8 am - 7 pm and Saturday, 9am - 4pm. Opening Reception and Artist Talk: Wednesday, June 11th, 2014, 5:30 – 7pm.

Pleasing Nature, Jayme McLellan’s most recent body of work, pairs scenes from the natural world with images from contemporary material culture to call into question what is truly beautiful. While some photographs evoke Romantic notions of beauty – clouds etching the sky, a green landscape at golden hour – others capture fragments from daily life in which ideas about femininity are both prescribed and enacted.  The images are encased in lavish frames, a metaphor for the use of artifice and personal adornment as layers of defense between the outside world and the complex world within. The objects take on deeper psychological significance when paired with titles drawn from iconic 20th century literature and postmodern philosophy.  Through these juxtapositions of image and text, McLellan exposes the complexities, contradictions, and desires hidden beneath a beautiful surface.

Jayme McLellan is an artist, educator, curator, writer, and gallery director. She is the founder and director of the Washington, DC gallery Civilian Art Projects.
