Jane Kent: Unfolded forms, evocative shapes

Jane Kent, Blue Nose, 2013, silkscreen printed, 9 colors Somerset 26 3/8 × 18 1/2 inches. Printed/published Aspinwall Editions, ed. of 35
Jane Kent spent a couple week this summer at the Druckvereinigung Bentlage in Kloster Bentlage, Rheine, Germany and at Aspinwall Editions, NY, collaborating with Ann Aspinwall and Knut Willich. The buoyant silkscreen prints she created, generated from the quirky shapes of unfolded cardboard boxes, are currently on view at Pocket Utopia. I particularly liked "Blue Nose" (pictured above) for the off-kilter stacking, scalloped line, and central blue painterly swirl that reminds me of Robert Mitchum's world-weary eyes--it seems to be watching us.  Go earlier rather than later to ensure that you'll get one of the 1000 offset prints Kent made to give away at the show.
