SILENT/LISTEN new paintings by Jaybo
Soze Gallery will be opening its doors for its first exhibition at this Location.We are proud to announce this first exhibition will showcase the work of Jaybo Monk. Jaybo will be exhibiting for the first time in Los Angeles and this will also be his first Solo Exhibition… in California.
Jaybo is an urban wanderer, a traveler that moves in the space of that unfinished metropolis, that is the world, among memories, fragments and traces abandoned in the urban landscape, that works like a theater of the human joy and pain, studded with relationships that slide between first glances and deep emotions.
During this wandering, the painter meets the unexpected, what happens by chance, and is inspired by that accident that catches the eye and the brain, that incidental event, detail, word or shape that breaks in along the way and that he takes with him to the canvas.
Jaybo builds his poetics on these small accidents and unwanted mistakes that happen. He takes advantage of what happens at the wrong time, in the wrong place, his research in painting is about trying to be open to the unknown and to the accidental, without prejudices but with amazement and curiosity.
It is exactly this curiosity that makes Jaybo attracted to the unseen, from things left on the streets, to items forgotten around, to left-overs or something no one notices anymore, things as lost as he is in himself, like a peculiar expression on a passerby’s face or a move of a stranger’s body walking along the streets.
