Dorian Wood and Craig Calderwood's exhibition of new drawing and mixed media work  explore resistant bodies, blooming in extremis, tender and monstrous.

Dorian Wood has been featured at LACMA, REDCAT, UCLA, The Stone (New York), Mousonturm (Frankfurt), Matadero Madrid and the Stockholm Fringe Fest.  In 2011, Dorian was commissioned by LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions) to present a new work for the performance series Los Angeles Goes Live, part of Pacific Standard Time. His performance installation, Athco, Or The Renaissance of Faggot Tree, incorporated over 30 performers, and was presented at Barnsdall Art Park. That same year, Dorian performed with Marina Abramovic in her piece An Artist's Life Manifesto, presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA). Dorian Wood was born in Echo Park, CA and educated in Costa Rica.  Dorian lives and works in Los Angeles.

"As a manner of awakening from a state of fear-ridden unconsciousness, my two large-scale works, Pillows of War and First 400 Years MMXV, each encapsulate data from this intimate state. Two pasts waving at each other from distant docks, both refusing to coincide. While one is intended to remain and be viewed as a unified body, the other is to be sold off in pieces: each piece a horrible daily truth from my own life." - D.W

A self-taught artist, Craig Calderwood'sobsessively intricate ink drawings and sculpture deal with Trans/Queer identity, Biodiversity, and continued attempts to “normalize” desire. Maneuvering through non-verbal representation, Calderwood employs bright, intricate patterns of hidden (and sometimes blatant) symbolism in her work to portray complex narratives engaging in the highly personal to the fantasized. Calderwood has exhibited at ASC Projects, SOMArts, Root Division, and ONE archive in California and has been featured in Juxtapoz, Radar, and dot429. Calderwood grew up in the Central Valley of CA and currently lives and works in San Francisco. 

Calderwoods' series of drawings engages the learning of shame in Clovis, CA as a queer child. The series explores the often unseen or ignored realities of childhood sexuality and how the Closet gets formed around you.
