Mark Jenkins | Moment of Impact | Lazarides Rathbone

Moment of Impact at Lazarides Rathbone is (to the best of my knowledge) the first solo show in London by DC-based artist Mark Jenkins in a quite a few years. Although his trademark life-sized sculptures and three-dimensional canvases actually lose a bit of their impact in a gallery setting as opposed to on the street for the unsuspecting public to encounter, the show is nonetheless a winner and well worth checking out.

In Conversation with Dan Witz (Whitehot Magazine of Contemporary Art)

I’ve always enjoyed working in London.
