Building on the success of its last three exhibitions, the fourth Jennifer Lauren Gallery
offering features three artists from across the world, all sharing their memories in an explosion of colour, line and form: Ben Wilson, known as the chewing gum man, from the UK; Garrol Gayden from LAND Gallery in New York and Robert Fischer from Geyso20 in Germany. With two artists working out of supported art studios, and one artist working to his own rules, this diverse exhibition draws on the Gallery Director’s interest in text within artwork, its legibility and its purpose. Director Jennifer Gilbert said:
“Ever since my degree I have been interested in how text is used within artwork, and whether messages are subtly or openly made through this medium. Within my own artwork, text has played an important part, highlighting the unspeakable in suggestive but not overly obvious ways. These three artists use text and symbols in varying ways to either explain or narrate their ideas, or in Robert Fischer’s case we, as the audience, are left to make our own decisions on what his symbols and letters are perhaps meant to illustrate.”
The Jennifer Lauren Gallery is excited to bring these three artists together, two of which
are being shown in the UK for the first time, enabling audiences the opportunity to explore the narratives within the artworks from their own personal viewpoint. Each artist’s own unique line quality, layering of mediums and use of colour, has its own story to tell.
