Join us for the opening reception of "Borrowed Time" a solo exhibition featuring the works of Long Beach artist Jerry Peña.Jerry Peña explores his cultural identity as a first generation Mexican American with materials rooted in manual labor while also incorporating found objects to produce sculptural paintings that capture often ignored moments in his environment. Certain musical subcultures, vintage American nostalgia, California car culture, and art movements like minimalism and abstract expressionism are all major influences. The viewer is overwhelmed with repetition, texture, imagery and color in order to disrupt any predispositions to the materials used or identity addressed allowing for a more contemporary understanding of both.
