WAAS Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibit of new works, titled “FOMO”, by artist Erika Jaeggli. The gallery will host an artist reception from 6-9 p.m. on Saturday, May 9 and the exhibition will remain on view through June 13.
Jaeggli's artistic output to date has been concerned with creating contemplative works and installations that address subjects of gender, economy and climate change. Continuing to use metaphor and visual storytelling as artistic material, Jaeggli’s work references both past and contemporary culture in “FOMO” (Fear of Missing Out). In large-scale charcoal drawings, she reinterprets sentiments of emptiness and angst found from the advent of postcards to present-day engagement with social media. The result is an intersection of modern culture with a highly contemplative imagination.
