Royale Projects is pleased to announce 3, 4½, 7½, 12, an exhibition of new works by Jen Aitken opening Jan 5 and running through Feb 2. This will be the artist’s first solo show in Los Angeles, CA.

Resembling fragments of buildings, Aitken’s cast concrete sculptures explore the body’s relationship to the architectural world while offering a quiet moment of contemplation. As one moves around each work, the spatial and volumetric qualities seem to shift, encouraging a slow, focused perception and guiding visual awareness. The artist reconsiders the environments encountered everyday, blurring the boundary between art and engineering and selecting what is revered or neglected in our surrounding spaces.

She states, “My core drive as an artist is to encourage intuitive intelligence. I aim to subvert language and interpretation in order to emphasize direct experience.”
