New Shows from Eddie Martinez, Jack Early & Glenn Ligon

February 26, 2016

In his largest solo exhibition to date, Jack Early showcases a new body of paintings and sculptures. While still implementing the tongue-in-cheek provocation that defined his early works (many of them created in partnership with Rob Pruitt), Early’s newer pieces focus more on his own narrative and approach to story telling. The new works include images of furniture and wallpaper from Early’s childhood home, combined with references to pop culture images from the artist’s youth. Thus, visitors glimpse an intensely personal approach to Americana, both cliche and indisputably real at the same time.
