February 27th Exhibition
And if the Devil is Six...
February 27th - March 22nd, 2015, Opening February 27th, 6-9pm
And if the Devil is Six...brings together several years of Jain's paintings which explore the symbolic body. Working with casein paint directly on wood, augmented by silver, gold mica and black mica and wood carving, these works bring together diverse sources including new age spiritualism, phrenology, body shape charts and thermal imaging, and juxtapose them with the colors of the prismatic spectrum.
Vandana Jain is an artist and textile designer based in Brooklyn, NY. She received her Bachelor's from NYU and went on to study Textile Design at FIT. Her work explores the intersections of pattern and symbol, and spirituality and consumerism. This is her second show at Station Independent Projects.

She has received several awards for her work including the Emerging Artist's
Fellowship at Socrates Sculpture Park, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council
