Jerry Peña: A Rose By Any Other Name
961 Chung King Rd, Los Angeles CA 90012
Saturday, June 1 at 6:00 PM 9:00 PM
Ends Jul 6, 2024
An exhibition of wall-based works that merge painting, photography, and found materials in compositions that spring from the artist’s keen observations of the psychological and physical landscapes that surround him. The works aesthetically descend from Rauschenberg’s post-minimalist inventions, combining the materials of art and life to create something more than either alone. Peña employs the textures, colors, and materials of working class Los Angeles in experimental, expressionist compositions that speak to his own family history, the history of the city, and the tensions of identity and assimilation.
