About

Ballon Rouge Collective is excited to present American artist Samuel Jablon’s “Don’t Panic” curated by Francesca Gavin. It is Samuel’s second solo exhibition with B.R.C., and his first ever in London.

Samuel deconstructs language into objects. His approach to narrative and structure is intentionally inventive and fragmentary. Vibrant, colourful canvases are covered in words or phrases that can be assembled, reassembled and taken apart. Yet they still retain some sense of meaning. The small canvases that make up the exhibition echo the intimacy of the book page or the spoken word. The content is captured from his experience of urban space, particularly in New York City. The artist notes down snippets of conversation, advertising slogans and social phrases which become the starting point for series of paintings that expose the emotional litmus of the city, and play with the history and experience of painting itself.
