from no fixed point

New Work by Benjamin Jenner

MAY 29 - JULY 18  2014

 

from no fixed point [untitled II], 2014

In from no fixed point  Benjamin Jenner has captured through drawing, painting and sculpture the passing of time, creating an impression of strangely wrought time-pieces. Jenner’s complex drawings and powerful sculptures exhibit the persistence of ideas evolving through repetition and recreation, constantly shifting and turning under fundamental mathematical processes.

On first glance Jenner’s work appears architectural, representations of real structures, but slowly they reveal themselves as perhaps pure crystalline forms. They are both the microscopic and the colossal, but here rendered on to a barren, empty landscape. These tensions in Jenner's works of shifting time, changes in scale and sense of movement creates a strong pulse and a compelling sense of oddness.

Presenting Jenner’s first solo London show The Foundry Gallery has brought together in a single space his drawings, paintings and sculptures. Opening up this colourful and otherwordly scene skilfully brought together by Benjamin Jenner’s enquiring and persistent imagination. from no fixed point is an artist’s exploration into the representation and recording of time captured through three dimensional forms.
