Mark Jenkins, “Standing Reader”, life-size sculpture

 

Both artists will present new work, paintings and sculptures. “Rubber Time” refers to an idiom from Indonesia that expresses the tendency for a relaxed and flexible perspective on punctuality and time-keeping. Schoultz and Jenkins apply this concept of “elastic time” to our current societal climate in the United States, seeing the present period as a suspended limbo with troubling unknowns both in the past and in the near future.

Andrew Schoultz, “Don’t Tread on Me” (Broken Flag). Gold leaf and acrylic on torn, dyed and re-assembled flags, 30X52.

 

Their work touches on political and cultural issues with dark humor and irony, reflecting on what they see as the development of a unique moment in history. Both of the artists often address societal issues that are not easy or comfortable to confront, but are relevant and necessary to reflect upon. While seeking out the dark corners of our current moment, Schoultz and Jenkins present the turmoil and anxiety with a tinge of hope for the future.

Mark Jenkins, “The Thin Line”, 2015.

 

Andrew Schoultz, most known for his intricately detailed and layered compositions, presents work that echoes the chaos of our current political climate. He addresses a multitude of themes, referencing in varying motifs the struggles of modern America. His newest series of work focuses on the strongest symbol of our nation, the American flag. Discussing ideas of commodification, globalization of culture, and political upheaval, Schoultz seeks to highlight not only today’s dilemmas but the concepts and events that reverberate throughout history.

Andrew Schoultz, “See Through The Trees”.

 

Mark Jenkins delivers visceral emotional reactions with his work in addition to a pointed commentary on the darker issues afflicting modern society. He references gun violence, fear, terrorism, and crime with a wicked humor that challenges the viewer’s perspective on these controversial issues. His sculptures, realistic mimics whose life-like bodies appear frozen in time, create tableaus that incorporate the viewer akin to a piece of performance. For this series, Jenkins describes the slowing down of time for his pieces – the viewer sees the figures trapped within a suspended moment, perhaps a reflection of the pivotal point in history in which we find ourselves.
