Joseph Rowntree – This is Awkward
August 20 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
We are very excited to invite you to the opening of, This is Awkward, new works from the studio by Joseph Rowntree.
For his show at ĀKINA we see Rowntree put down the spray cans and window frames in a shift to oil paints for the first time.
”Rowntree is an artist in evolution, constantly pushing himself to new things…… the paintings have a renewed simplicity – a paired back maturity”.
”Also known as JR the Free, Rowntree is invested in autonomy and authenticity in his practice and his product”
”I want to be really genuine with my art, not put a whole lot of afterthought into it. I want to really think about what’s going in and why its going in” – Joseph Rowntree.
Come celebrate this with us, this coming Tuesday 9 August at 5.30pm.
On until 31 August.
