This focused installation provides a glimpse into the impressive body of work that Boston-based artist Lavaughan Jenkins has produced over the past six months as the Addison’s Edward E. Elson Artist-in-Residence. Pouring, squeezing, and slathering pigment with brushes, palette knives, and syringes, Jenkins continuously works and reworks his compositions while remaining open to fortuitous drips and spills, creating sculptural paintings that provocatively push the boundaries of the medium. Reveling in the materiality of paint and inspired by a range of sources from art history and personal memory to fashion, racism, and activism, these exciting new works build on the artist’s ongoing quest to redefine painting and pay homage to the Black women who have made an impact on him personally as well as the larger world.

Generous support for this installation has been provided by the Edward E. Elson Artist-in-Residence Fund.

On view on Level 1, off the Rotunda
