Jenkins Johnson Projects in pleased to announce Homeostasis, two simultaneous exhibitions curated by Dexter Wimberly.
Homeostasis includes new bodies of work by Galveston, Texas-based artist, Leonardo Benzant, and New Haven, Connecticut-based artist, Vaughn Spann. Both present work that reflects a keen interest in balance and the natural interconnectivity of the seen and unseen world.
Maneuvering between the sacred and the secular, Leonardo Benzant mines a deep well of experiences and international artistic vocabularies. His practice is informed by studies of the Congo, his spiritual beliefs and his research into native African and South-American religions and rituals. Through sculpture and painting, Benzant depicts his impressions of physical and cosmic spaces, and continuously explores his ties to his ancestral past.
Vaughn Spann, Sick of Lemon Cake, 2017, caulk, acrylic paint, spray paint, yarn, 11 x 14 inches
