The self-titled exhibition, Ben Jones, will transform Ace Gallery into an immersive space filled with Video Paintings and wall-climbing New Ladder sculptures as well as the introduction of T.V. Paintings and Cinema Paintings. Ben Jones created a new category of art-making when he introduced Video Paintings.
He has been a crucial contributor to contemporary art since the early 2000’s. Being a founding member of the multimedia collective, Paper Rad, he helped pioneer the intersection of digital media, the internet, and art-making.
This exhibition will highlight the multifaceted elements of Jones’ work that advances the familiar medium of painting on canvas to the exciting technology of cinema paintings.
His seemingly animated ladder sculptures alter the perceived concept of a ladder, transforming them from a set of two straight lines connected by rungs, to structures that twist and curl like a strands of DNA.
The recurring visuals of his psychedelically mesmerizing cinema paintings along with his are symbolic ladder sculptures are sure to captivate.
This is Ben Jones’ first solo exhibition with Ace Gallery following his West Coast debut solo exhibition, The Video, at MOCA Los Angeles in 2013.
