Benjamin Jenner at the Foundry Gallery
THE Foundry Gallery is presenting new work by Benjamin Jenner in an exhibition entitled from no fixed point, which is on display from May 29 to July 18, 2014.
In from no fixed point Benjamin Jenner has captured through drawing, painting and sculpture the passing of time, creating an impression of strangely wrought time-pieces. Jenner’s complex drawings and powerful sculptures exhibit the persistence of ideas evolving through repetition and recreation, constantly shifting and turning under fundamental mathematical processes.
On first glance Jenner’s work appears architectural, representations of real structures, but slowly they reveal themselves as perhaps pure crystalline forms. They are both the microscopic and the colossal, but here rendered on to a barren, empty landscape. These tensions in Jenner’s works of shifting time, changes in scale and sense of movement create a strong pulse and a compelling sense of oddness.
Presenting Jenner’s first solo London show, The Foundry Gallery has brought together in a single space his drawings, paintings and sculptures. from no fixed point is an artist’s exploration into the representation and recording of time captured through three dimensional forms.
Artist Benjamin Jenner will be talking about his current show and his practice – Writing in Practice on June 30, 2014 from 7.30 – 8.30pm.
Jenner, along with invited artists Edward Allington, Leah Miller-Biot and William Stein will read from their own writing and discuss the relevance of writing to their Artistic practice. The event will be chaired by Jacqui McIntosh.
