Philadelphia, PA - Tiger Strikes Asteroid is pleased to present In Darkness, a solo exhibition of works by TSA PHL member Joanna Platt.


Consisting of small video incursions and a large sculptural projection, these works explore concepts of shadow and illumination, the tiny cracks in darkness that allow the light to enter. The small pieces reference painting with thick applications of encaustic on panel, lenses obscuring and revealing small video vignettes, moments of reflection during walks in nature. In the larger installation, painted black lines create form and shadow with video projected through sanded acrylic, like light filtering through leaves on trees, the only color coming from the elusive movement of the projected footage.


Joanna Platt received her BFA from Mason Gross School of the Arts, New Brunswick, NJ and her MFA from the University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA.  Joanna’s varied exhibitions include; Galeria Nacional, San Jose, Costa Rica, SoHo 20, NY, NY, Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery, Philadelphia, PA, The Hunterdon Museum of Art, Clinton NJ, Artist Run at the Satellite Art Fair in Miami, and The Seaport Museum in Philadelphia.  Most recently, she had a solo show at The Main Line Arts Center as part of the Betsy Meyer Memorial Exhibition. She is currently employed as an adjunct professor at Camden County College, Blackwood, NJ, and as a sculpture technician at Independent Casting, Philadelphia, PA.
