AZTEC WARRIOR by Jean Conner, 1990
150 works, some from the private collection of Sussex Street resident Jean Conner and many never exhibited before, illustrate the artists’ intertwined interests in mysticism, religion, social and cultural norms, the natural world and the human body. This exhibition surveys the practices of two remarkable late 20th and early 21st century voices. Jean Conner’s art-making practice encompasses painting and drawing in addition to collage, the medium for which she is best known. Working consistently for the past 60 years, it’s only in the last few that she’s been “rediscovered” by the art world establishment, resulting in recent acquisitions by the Whitney Museum of American Art, LACMA, SFMOMA, Centre Pompidou, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. The San Jose Museum of Art has also recently acquired her work and will present a major retrospective in 2021. http://hosfeltgallery.com/exhibition/28231/
