SIGNAL is pleased to present The Mark Inside, a group exhibition featuring works from Jordan Kasey, Bennet Schlesinger, and Kristin Walsh.

Jordan Kasey’s large-scale oil paintings depict heavy, monumental figures and objects, placid scenes charged with an undercurrent of the uncanny. The foregrounded bodies and materials largely obscure their surroundings, amplifying the interior feelings and psychologies of their subjects.

Bennet Schlesinger’s small epoxy-molded works show hazy images of Los Angeles at night, fleece-printed photographs taken outside of LA donut shops, the only all-night respite among a spiderweb of interstate highways.

Kristin Walsh’s intricately constructed aluminum machines employ magnets and motors in the invisible service of unsettling illusions: pills dance on their surfaces, dice roll, coins spin, all compelled by subtle interior machinations.

JORDAN KASEY (b. 1985, Chicago, IL) has exhibited works in solo and two-person exhibitions at Nicelle Beauchene, New York (2017); SIGNAL, Brooklyn; Greenpoint Terminal Gallery, Brooklyn; and Phoebe Gallery, Baltimore. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at MoMA PS1, Queens (2017); White Cube Gallery Bermondsey, London (2017); Johannes Vogt, East Hampton; American Medium, Brooklyn, and others.

BENNET SCHLESINGER (b. 1987, Costa Mesa, CA) is currently based in Los Angeles. His work has been exhibited in numerous group and solo exhibitions, including at AA|LA Gallery, Los Angeles (2017); Violet’s Cafe, Brooklyn; Karma, Amagansett; SIGNAL, Brooklyn; AND NOW, Dallas; Big Medium, Austin, and others.

KRISTIN WALSH (b. 1989, Emerald Isle, NC) has exhibited work in numerous solo and group exhibitions. She lives and works in New York.
