ATTRIBUTE: EDWARDS + PORTNER + SOLIVEN
The Art Gallery at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM), Art Building is proud to present the exhibition Attribute: Edwards + Portner + Soliven, curated by Gaye Chan. The show will be on view from September 3 – October 18, 2019. There will be a gallery walkthrough with the artists on Sunday, September 8, 2019 from 2 – 3 p.m. and an opening reception from 3 – 5 p.m. The reception will be held jointly with the exhibition Mary Kim: Ggot Byeol: Love of Two Stars. All events are free and open to the public.
Chan writes, “One of the most common questions asked of artists is what inspires our work. I have invited three Hawai‘i-based artists to create new projects that combine their own artworks with the actual sources of their inspiration. Christopher Edwards, Maya Lea Portner and Juvana Soliven were selected for their long commitment to different craft traditions. But more importantly, I chose them because their work feels like things that exist not only as sculptures, but on their own terms.”
Christopher Edwards began working in ceramics in 2012. His work is in the collections of the Honolulu Museum of Art, Hawai‘i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, Art in Public Places Program, as well as national and international private collections.
Maya Lea Portner earned her BFA from Washington University School of Art and MFA from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. Her sculptures were included in the Holland Paper Biennial of 2008 in Den Haag, The Netherlands. Portner has been an artist-in-residence at the “Waaw” Residency, Senegal; Baroda Printmaking Studio, Gujurat, India; and the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Maine.
Juvana Soliven completed her BFA at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa and MFA at Cranbrook Academy of Art, Michigan. She also studied art restoration and conservation at Lorenzo de' Medici International School in Florence, Italy. Soliven, a lecturer in the Department of Art & Art History, UHM, has also taught at the Honolulu Museum of Art School.
