Heaven Gallery welcomes a solo show of new work by Scott Jarrett. In the Lining is an exhibition of reworked and reconsidered materials, objects, and histories selected by Jarrett according to a set of rules and regulations imposed upon long meditative walks throughout various neighborhoods. The imposed sets of rules and personal restraints that form the selection process are also applied to the making, which slows down intuition and desire, just enough to treat each piece of material as an individual history with transformed ambitions and qualities that constantly present themselves as the enveloped capacity to be seized, altered, or privileged.
In the past, Jarrett has photographed his assemblages of objects and places in a similar method, but left the world outside on its own terms. Now, these things have been brought inside his studio where the making might serve best thought of as a partnership entering into a new application.
