Opening Reception of 'Rubber Time' at Fabien Castanier Gallery in Wynwood on Saturday, May 20th from 6-9pm featuring work by Andrew Schoultz and Mark Jenkins

Andrew Schoultz, “Don’t Tread on Me” (Broken Flag). Gold leaf and acrylic on torn, dyed and re-assembled flags, 30X52.
Fabien Castanier Gallery in Wynwood presents a dual exhibition, 'Rubber Time', featuring work by Andrew Schoultz and Mark Jenkins.
Join us for the Opening Reception on Saturday, May 20th from 6-9pm. 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.
Mark Jenkins, “Standing Reader”, life-size sculpture.
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. The exhibition runs through July 31st at Fabien Castanier Gallery in the Wynwood Arts District, located at 82 NE 26th Street, Suite #111 in Miami, FL 33137.
