Jamel Robinson - Facing Infinity
Facing Infinity is the third major public solo exhibition by artist Jamel Robinson. On January 14th, 2016, in conjunction with the Ivy Brown Gallery and Jamestown LP, Jamel will display works throughout the historic Chelsea Market in New York City through the end of February.
In an attempt to explore the infinite possibilities of changing the atmosphere of a public arena through artistic expression, the Ivy Brown Gallery has curated a collection of sixteen abstract self portraits on paper that will challenge the upwards of 20,000 passers by that filter through the Chelsea Market on a daily basis.
This body of work is reflective of Robinson's poetry in painting and the expression of the visual language he uses to ask and answer the questions posed by his inner self which are expressed in the constantly changing views we have of ourselves and the many faces we wear.
