OVERTONES is pleased to present "Triply," a group exhibition featuring work by artists Rachel Beth Egenhoefer, Sarah Morris and Rachelle Rojany.

"Triply" offers a conversation between three artists whose sense of detail is as interesting and as important as their view of the whole. Each artist offers an intimacy and care for the close-up in a way that transforms common materials into subtle works of art. They are bonded through their interest in time - linear in progressing, yet cyclical in its repetition.

Rachele Beth Egenhoefer in her work contemplates the cycles of analog to digital information pulsating up and down a wave of electricity by making tactile representations of cyclical data structures in candy and knitting. Her work has been exhibited internationally in Enschede Netherlands, the Options 2002 Biennial in Washington DC, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Institute for Contemporary Art (ICA) London, the 2003 Boston Cyber Arts Festival, the Banff Centre for the Arts, and others.

Sarah Morris collects everyday materials and by sewing or knitting them together, she invites the viewer to see the details of objects like old bills, plastic bags, or music tapes and offers a new experience of mundane objects and repetitive tasks. Sarah Morris has exhibited extensively in the Seattle area and the exhibition "Triply" at OVERTONES is first to showcase her work in Los Angeles.

Rachelle Rojany, through her sculpture "An Infinite Story," explores the idea of the infinite by creating a book with a continuous spine - a circularly bound book, one that is turned in on itself. Her sculpture questions and reconfirms the fundamental nature of the book itself, a vehicle for posterity, immortality, the preservation and containment of knowledge. Rachelle's work has been exhibited in Los Angeles and Berlin and she was chosen as one of the emerging art talents at the Los Angeles Scope Art Fair exhibition at Christie's in Beverly Hills.

OVERTONES is a Los Angeles art venue that supports and promotes creative endeavors in all artistic disciplines, with emphasis on the diversity of Los Angeles communities, international collaboration and social responsibility. OVERTONES is dedicated to searching outside the confines of established art institutions and presenting work that has the potential to engage a wide range of audiences.
