|Interdigitation interweaves three Bay Area artists, Patricia Stroud, Sydney Cohen, and Tosha Stimage whose practices examine the intersectional qualities of noticing, learning, and remembering.
Sydney Cohen’s works—from her latest series Intimacy in Space Travel: Color Transmissions, Rocket Catchers, Time Slip Suggestions—are painted flat to allow for the surface and sides to build up with both intentional and random marks. Cohen develops layer upon layer of visual information. Fundamentally her practice involves the integration of now with then, here with there, and the constant tug between interior and exterior dimensions.
Tosha Stimage’s site-specific installation furthers her investigations into the formal and informal history of orange and the idea of the orangery as a compromised urban arcadia. A recent MFA graduate, Stimage is quickly gaining attention for her interest in separating memory from the act of experience as an ongoing investigation of racial ideologies.
Patricia Stroud’s sculptures—made over several decades—consider the textures of intimacy and the physicality of loss. Working in wood that she carves by hand then patinas and polishes, Stroud creates objects that appear almost like bodily organs—suggesting that deeply felt experiences become part of the flesh.
