Paul Jenkins’ Exhibition of Major Works from the 60s and 70s at the Redfern Gallery


LONDON.- American born abstract expressionist, Paul Jenkins’ exhibition of major works from the 1960s and 70s is on display from 7th June – 28th July 2011 at the Redfern Gallery, London W1. Born in Kansas City, Missouri in 1923, Jenkins was drawn to New York to study. He later became associated with the Abstract Expressionists; friends and co-artists included names such as Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Robert Motherwell. Since the 1950s he has shared his time between studios in New York and France. Jenkins’ paintings have come to represent the spirit, vitality, and invention of post World War II American abstraction. Employing an unorthodox approach to paint application, Jenkins’ fame is as much identified with the process of controlled paint-pouring and canvas manipulation
