The Jancar Jones Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibit of work by Los Angeles-based artist Sean Kennedy. The exhibit will include a new body of work comprised of 12 x 12 inch tiles, made of uniformly poured latex paint, and wall mounted suede paintings.
Through a reinvestment of paint with illusionism, the tiles (which serve as receptacles for a variety of painted abstract marks) posit non-objective abstraction as something capable of fluctuation between the supposedly respective realms of high art and commercial design. In this context, the assimilability of certain forms seems to have been prefigured by their lack of representation. In juxtaposition with the suede paintings, whose surfaces might bear traces of similar patterns, these forms are meant to seem highly disposable.
