Join us for hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and recent paintings from Louisville artist, Joshua Jenkins. The show is titled “Summertime”. In his latest body of work, Jenkins explores the season of summer by highlighting nature, music, and moments in time.

“Art to me is the soul’s communication–a response to experience and life. This theory is what innately drives me to create, because I feel as though I have to, for my own well being. Like many artists, I use art as a source of therapy. I am also inspired by observing people around me. In some regards, I consider myself a voyeur of life. People intrigue me, not only on a physical plane, but on a deeper emotional level.”

“Much of my work is figuratively representational through an expressive and abstract medium. My forms are distorted and at times can seem like disfigured scribbles of a body. I use this disruptive and freeform line as a reference to the influence from the Expressionist movement and also acknowledging the energy of street artists. Furthermore, I find beauty in the raw textures that plagues old cities and in the primitive instincts–used to enhance the decay through an artistic resolve–that graffiti artists seem to do so well. This notion is definitely the root of my overall aesthetic.”
