Booth 411 | Profile

This year and curated in collaboration with The Estate of Paul Jenkins, Ronchini Gallery will be exhibiting a selection of works from the 60s and early 70s, a period notable for the development of Jenkins’ renowned technique, particularly with regards to his use of both acrylic paint and his signature ivory knife. Some key pieces from the 2000s will also be shown, highlighting his late work. The works feature bold, undulating colors in motion that entice and entrance, which is emblematic of Jenkins’ work as a whole, he at times referred to himself as an "abstract phenomenist" and, since 1960, prefaced his titles with the word “Phenomena.”

Paul Jenkins was associated with the Abstract Expressionism movement and was also a friend and contemporary of many other notable artists including Jean Dubuffet, Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning. His work is now owned by more than 85 museums, in 10 different countries, such as MoMA, Centre Georges Pompidou, Tate London, Whitney Museum and the Stedelijk Museum, and his work continues to be exhibited extensively in notable institutions and galleries worldwide.
