Andrew Jensdotter | Road Work
May 15, 2021 - Jun 26, 2021
K Contemporary is exited to showcase a solo exhibition by Denver-based artist Andrew Jensdotter, titled "Road Work." The show features new work by the artist, including sculpture, drawing and painting, on both the first and second floors of the gallery. This is his first regional solo exhibition following his 2019 show at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) Denver. After a tumultuous year, during which the artist experienced a near-death health scare followed by the pandemic, Jensdotter's work is a reflection on his transitional states of being. "We are, from the womb, in a place of pure comfort and security for a time - our first place of consciousness - until we are expelled into what must feel like a harsh reality. Then we learn to breathe air, but the gravity is there. We live with this gravity. We are wounded, we find pleasure, but we are always pursuing that return to serenity," said Jensdotter.
