Jasper Johns New Sculpture and Works on Paper at MATTHEW MARKS GALLERY

James Kalm is privileged to bring viewers this walkthrough tour of the most recent exhibition of the work of Jasper Johns. As one of the last remaining lions of the 1950s New York art scene, over fifty years after his debut, the enigmatic work of Johns still befuddles critics and viewers alike. This show is comprised of nine new sculptures and represents one of the largest bodies of work completed during this artist's career. Cast in bronze, silver and aluminum all but one of these works relate to classic Johns paintings. "Fragment of a Letter" is based on text from a Vincent van Gough letter and incorporated sign language stamps and casts of the artist's hands spelling out his own name. We also see a collection of drawings and prints, some relating to the sculptures.
