Features drawings by Doug Crocco, paintings by Heesu Jeon and Manny Prieres, and furniture and design objects by Jonathan Nesci.
As our tumultuous world erupts, shocks and then entropies, Pensive aims to provide a moment of respite to ponder the sometimes abstruse agency between thought and transmission; The compromise between intent and object; The gulf between creativity and duplication.
Pensive features drawings by Doug Crocco, paintings by Heesu Jeon and Manny Prieres and furniture and design objects by Jonathan Nesci. While these four individuals come from differing paradigms their curious methodological byways and high regard for aesthetic cohesion present a generous opportunity to lose yourself in their work.
Doug Crocco delicately renders physical yet labyrinthine abstractions in color pencil. Heesu Jeon scumbles glowing compositions on canvas depicting collages of detritus, anime pastiches and constructivism. Jonathan Nesci fabricates stark minimal furniture and objects, binding form and function usually with a single material. Manny Prieres hard edge abstractions resemble printed matter but are painstakingly constructed through a hands on tone transfer process.
