KB Jones, “The Land and the Fog”

September 5, 2023 @ 10:00 am - November 4, 2023 @ 6:00 pm

Rachel Uffner Gallery is proud to present The Land and the Fog, an exhibition of new paintings by Brooklyn-based painter, KB Jones. This is the artist’s first exhibition with the gallery.

My most consistent subject in this show is garbage: garbage bins, bags, and recycling. But the show is quite varied, and I also include a portrait, several domestic scenes, and a giant tapestry-style painting depicting waves of water.”
– KB Jones

Jones uses both oil and industrial paints – oil for intimate portraits and clearance house paint for more flat, composite landscapes, setting up a dichotomy of intimacy and distance, with both kinds of measurement offering a visual comfort. Her subjects are varied, from a bedroom portrait of a woman, head turned, to a series of refuse, from garbage bags to large bins to a candid shot of recyclable bottles. There is both a closeness and distance in the latter subject, a mystery in presentation that plays in light and shadow, intimacy and repulsion within the quotidian expense of everyday living.

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 14, 6-8 pm
