Gregory Lind Gallery is pleased to present Electric Space Gardeners, Jovi Schnell’s fourth exhibition with the gallery. The assembled works include large-scale canvases and works on paper that present a hybridized botanical world where the codes of nature, humanity, and technology flow freely. Schnell’s imaginative interplay of amorphous flora, botanical shapes, and micro patterns offer speculations from a corpus of research that includes automatic gardens, plant physiology, herbariums, parallel plant species, and botanical folklore.

Additionally, thanks to Aaron Hazelwood, Azurdee Miller & Sarah Pyle for their boundless enthusiasm and generous volunteer work. I feel very fortunate to have had such a stellar crew and supportive community on this project.

Mural for new San Francisco Skate Park begins! One column down 5 to go and then some...

The imagery for the mural was inspired by the sites former victorian era amusement park, Woodward's Gardens. During its heyday the park offered its visitors a museum of natural curiosities, zoo, exotic gardens and the largest west coast skating rink of its time.

Delighted to report the installation of my work outside the US Embassy in Belgrade, Serbia. Thank you to the AIE program and fabricators for making it all happen! Also, many thanks to Nena Nikolic, whose generous hospitality during my stay in Belgrade made a lifelong impression. The artwork was inspired by a combination of influences I found throughout my travels there including traditional costume, Serbian Cilim rug design, mosaics of the byzantine commonwealth and the medieval Serbian myth, The Valley of the Lilacs.
