Somewhere in Between: David Shrobe

Jenkins Johnson presents Somewhere In Between, an exhibition of new works by New York based visual artist and painter David Shrobe. He creates paintings and assemblages from repurposed, unconventional, or found materials. Shrobe’s first west coast solo exhibition is on view September 22 - October 27, 2018.


Somewhere in Between gives us windows and portals, as the artist often refers to his work, that provide glimpses into uncharted territory, and transport the viewer and his subjects. Shrobe invites us to partake in a multilayered exchange of materiality, symbolism, and multiple perspectives, where abstraction and figuration coexist and new portrayals emerge. His work presents alternative representations that project empowerment and defiance towards prescribed systems of authority. His unique visual language combines painting, drawing and collage.
