Byrde + the b is pleased to announce an exhibit of Harrison “Whitey” Jenkins new artwork. The exhibit will run through May 26, 2018.
Jenkins has designed and fabricated over 200 wood sculptures over the past 20 years. Byrde + the b will be showcasing a carefully curated selection of Jenkin’s sculptures. Jenkin’s sculpture are fabricated in wood shaped as “eliptoids”. They are colorful, fun and engaging organic pieces. In addition, Jenkin’s recent photographs will be on display ranging from small to large scale formats. His photography is strictly taken using an Apple iPhone. Different themes have evolved over the past couple years from architectural abstracts, landscape abstracts, stark museum interiors, fallen leaves, and images taken of American roads and bridges all taken while speeding by in a car.
“Photography for me with the iPhone is quick and easy and allows me to document things of interest almost every second of the day. They are sometimes enlarged to 5 feet or larger showcasing a unique grain in the printing process that appeals to me like the surface of a painting. Texture and shadow are apparent in all my photos. It is this distinctive element of aesthetic appreciation that I take for granted in everyday life. The iPhone captures what I miss in the moment so I can rejoice in its full splendor later.”
Opening Reception: Friday, April 6, 5 – 7 pm
