ARTIST’S TALK: Sunday, December 14, 4pm

An exhibition brochure with an essay by Jill Conner accompanies the show.

Kentler International Drawing Space is pleased to present Ernest Concepcion’s first solo exhibition in the United States. THE LINE WARS DELUXE features new large scale drawings in the front gallery space and stretches high, from floor-to-ceiling, and across a variety of surfaces and backgrounds–empty painted landscapes, clear acetate, even a tall humanoid. The show will premiere Concepcion’s conflict ridden planet of ONA and the ancient deity-slash-war devourer, GERANA!

“For Concepcion, actions speak louder than words and become part of a larger breakdown that builds to a constant catharsis and moves both inward and outward at the same time. In his drawings everything is alive: towns, roads and castles all become part of a larger moving body. Eventually the death wish and phoenix rising play out together in a series of assaults that spare only a fortunate few.” - Jill Conner
