Mini Galerie brings Raymond Lemstra, Tim Biskup and Josh Jefferson together in one show.
Mini Galerie kindly invites you to the opening of Supervision, an exhibition featuring Raymond Lemstra, Tim Biskup and Josh Jefferson on Friday the 6th of September 18-21h. Having a deep appreciation for each other’s work the artists have been thinking about collaborating for some time now. Mini Galerie is proud to bring these artists from different parts of the world together in one show.
In mask-like portraits, simple shapes such as triangles, lines and circles arouse immediate recognition: round eyes stare at us, angry, surprised happy or timid. Raymond Lemstra (1978, Groningen, NL) is fascinated by the phenomenon of pareidolia: the imagined perception of a pattern or meaning in for instance a cloud or rock and ascribing human features to it.
Tim Biskup was born in Santa Monica, California in 1967. His melodic paintings are sourced from a lifelong fascination with popular culture, punk rock and experimental music. He received a compelling combination of technical training from art school (Otis Parsons) and years in the trenches of the animation industry (Cartoon Network, Spümco, Disney).
Josh Jefferson has made visual art seriously since the late 1990’s with a singular drive that combines material experimentation and visual simplicity, comics, collage and a fetish for the lush verso of antiquated source material; a tactile, albeit intellectual result of his fondness for the past.
