LOCAL ARTIST JON ROLLINS SOLO EXHIBITION IN NYC
The show will feature mixed media works on canvas and panel that incorporate scrap materials from the artist’s studio. For these paintings, Rollins selects choice scraps, including sketches, tests, tape, doodles, and marred table coverings that are then collaged and combined with paint and drawing materials.
Reflecting on his process, Rollins stated, “They’re artifacts. They remind me of what was happening in my studio and life when they were made. I want to find a place for them beyond my studio.”
JanKossen Contemporary is located in the heart of the Chelsea art district. The gallery exhibits abstract and conceptual art from established and mid-career artists from around the world. Gallery director Dr. Jasmin Kossenjans first selected Rollins’ work to show at the SCOPE Art Fair in Basel, Switzerland in June 2018.
JanKossen Contemporary is located at 529 W 20th Street, 7th Floor, New York, NY 10011. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:30 AM to 6:00 PM, Monday by appointment only. The gallery can be contacted by phone at (631) 903-5564 or by email at email@example.com.
