In the Space Between 

When: March 3-April 15 2012

These three artists avoid cliché in a show that makes reference to but keeps its distance from 20th-century modes of object appropriation. Sandra Ono transforms ordinary stuff into poetic meditations on utilitarian transcendence. A pile of napkins conjoined with glue becomes a piece of architecture. A blanket of melted rubber bands becomes a flowing textile. Jennifer Brandon's work is similarly preoccupied with mundane material: pillow innards are stretched across photographs like sinew or cobweb. Masako Miyazaki's large drawings seem to trace a geologic -- albeit internal -- landscape of neurons and fault lines. The works combine to present an alchemical realty where a Zen-like power in art makes all things possible, or, at least, interesting. In the Space Between runs through April 15 at Swarm Gallery (560 2nd St., Oakland). 510-839-2787 or SwarmGallery.com
