James Jean "Rebus" ExhibitionMartha Otero opened its doors last night to the latest exhibition from Los Angeles-based artist
Martha Otero opened its doors last night to the latest exhibition from Los Angeles-based artist James Jean, titled “Rebus.” For this new body of work, Jean presented paintings, drawings and a wall installation. The subject matter revolved around a fictionalized subconscious representation of deities in an apocalyptic decaying romanticized setting. Jean’s visual symbolism is composed of an amalgamation of lyrically gestural, expressionistic, energetic, abstracted forms from highly detailed images to freely inscribed graffiti. “Rebus” will remain open through April 30, 2011.
