Art League Houston presents Daniela Koontz: "Soft Listings" opening reception
Art League Houston presents "Soft Listings," an exhibition featuring recent works on paper by Houston-based artist Daniela Koontz. In her twenties, Daniela Koontz worked a number of field seasons on an archaeological dig in Central America. It was there she learned to make technical drawings of artifacts in a style that informs her work today. Before the internet made list-making ubiquitous, Koontz made illustrated lists of beautiful and interesting things united by themes of her own imagining. Rather than documenting the ancient past, the resulting works on paper explore categories of late capitalism, rock & roll, supermarket flowers, and food.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until January 15, 2020.
