Sikkema Jenkins & Co. is pleased to present Kay Rosen: New Work 2020-2021, a solo exhibition featuring acrylic gouache paintings on paper, enamel paintings on canvas, and two wall murals. Produced over the past 18 months, these works respond to the fear, isolation, and anxiety experienced during that time.
The foundation of Rosen’s work remains language: its ontological function, and the mutability of text and image. She considers language to be “found material,” with the potential to engender new readings through minimal intervention. Meticulously hand-painted, her works utilize a range of graphic strategies, color, materials, composition, typography, and scale to shift one’s interpretation of otherwise familiar words and phrases, with humor an integral component in their making.
