The Night is Not Still
December 9, 2022–January 15, 2023

New Collectors is pleased to present "The Night is Not Still," a group exhibition that brings together four artists who investigate the relationship between unconscious thoughts or feelings and waking, everyday life. Featuring work by Amorelle Jacox, Kiyomi Quinn Taylor, Lauren Cline, and Stephano Espinoza Galarza.

Kiyomi Quinn Taylor (b.1995) is a multimedia artist born and raised in South Orange, New Jersey. Taylor received her BFA from New York University in 2017 and her MFA from Columbia University in 2020. She makes work that examines iconographies of her mixed-race heritage (Black and Japanese) as well as her family’s narrative history. Taylor uses collage and mixed media (including painting, drawing, sewing, stop-motion animation, and printmaking) to examine ancestral memory and her own inner, emotional life. Taylor received a fellowship from the New Jersey State Council of the Arts in 2022. She has shown her work internationally. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

Stephano Espinoza Galarza (b. 1992, Guayaquil, Ecuador) is a visual artist who lives and works in New Haven, Connecticut. They earned their BA in Social and Cultural Analysis with concentrations in Latino and Metropolitan Studies from New York University in 2015. He’s expected to receive his MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Yale University in 2023.

Lauren Cline (b.1992) is an American figurative painter whose work explores the realm of the home, the bedroom, and other domestic spaces. She is interested in interiors because of the way they reflect the interiority of the subjects that inhabit them, as well as because domestic spaces have long been the domain of women, and their depictions the domain of women artists. Lauren uses a process-based approach to create her compositions that is derived from Jungian psychoanalysis. She lives and works in New York City, where she is currently pursuing an MFA at Hunter College.

Amorelle Jacox is an American artist, born in Oklahoma, raised in Ohio, and currently based in Brooklyn, New York. She recently received her MFA from Hunter College. Jacox has shown her work in Ohio, New York, Los Angeles, Texas, Georgia, and Switzerland. She was a finalist for the Hopper Prize in 2022 and her works and writing have been published in Assemblage Journal, Penmarks Literary Journal and Yale School of Divinity’s LETTERS journal.
