long ending

Bill Jenkins at Laurel Gitlen:
Jenkins’ sculptures are carefully worked-out problems in which found objects and hand-fabricated elements are held together by a tenuous formal inertia, the simple mechanics of which appear to come easily undone. His chosen materials — a discarded air filter, a lightbulb, an oyster shell, a vent cover, a mattress frame — are remnants of a domestic economy. Flimsy, toxic, saved from the trash or collected after being dejected from it, the objects are no longer of practical importance, instead incarnated into an alternate system of value that is informed by the contact, use, and visibility of vernacular things.
