At the center point of Jane Kent’s solo exhibition, on view through February 16th, are two new silkscreen prints, one titled Pink Eye and the other Blue Nose. Kent uses unfolded cardboard boxes as templates for her silkscreen construction that are unabashedly colorful, with layered assemblies of rectangles and punctuated by flat, carefully errant marks and brushstrokes.
