For his eleventh solo exhibition with the gallery, James Welling presents his most recent series Personae, which relates to his ongoing series Cento that focuses on sculptures and artifacts from the Mediterranean region. In these new photographs, Welling reanimates images from Greek and Roman busts using elements drawn from historical artworks including Old Master paintings to Impressionist works.

Throughout his recent bodies of work, Sergej Jensen has demanded viewers to consider how a painting can represent both the process of its own creation and the world-at-large. Often using color palettes that might be considered austere, his assemblage works are parodic and laced with wry, materialist critiques.
