Jenkins Johnson Projects in pleased to announce Homeostasis, two simultaneous exhibitions curated by Dexter Wimberly.
November 18, 2017 – January 20, 2018
Opening reception: Saturday, November 18, 4 – 7pm
Homeostasis includes new bodies of work by Galveston, Texas-based artist, Leonardo Benzant, and New Haven, Connecticut-based artist, Vaughn Spann. Both present work that reflects a keen interest in balance and the natural interconnectivity of the seen and unseen world.
Maneuvering between the sacred and the secular, Leonardo Benzant mines a deep well of experiences and international artistic vocabularies. His practice is informed by studies of the Congo, his spiritual beliefs and his research into native African and South-American religions and rituals. Through sculpture and painting, Benzant depicts his impressions of physical and cosmic spaces, and continuously explores his ties to his ancestral past.
