Jerry Peña

 Borrowed Time 

BORROWED TIME is a solo exhibition featuring the recent works of Jerry Peña, on view February 13-28, 2021. Peña explores his cultural identity as a first generation Mexican American with materials rooted in manual labor while also incorporating found objects to produce sculptural paintings that capture often ignored moments in his environment. Certain musical subcultures, vintage American nostalgia, California car culture, and art movements like minimalism and abstract expressionism are all major influences. The viewer is overwhelmed with repetition, texture, imagery and color in order to disrupt any predispositions to the materials used or identity addressed allowing for a more contemporary understanding of both.
