John Valembrun


This exhibition presents new work by young, self-taught artist John Valembrun, whose interest in finding ways of transforming and representing language, as well as his search to balance negative space and color are palpable across the different media he uses in his work. His visual vocabulary includes the representation of human faces within or around abstract, colorful structures, as well as truncated words, often spelled backwards or up-side-down. His work invites the viewer not only to observe but also to decipher.

GALLERY HOURS:

Thursday through Sunday, 1pm to 6pm; or by appointment. 

DIRECTIONS:

Take 2, 3, or 4 trains to Franklin Avenue. Walk two blocks against the traffic on Franklin. Walk ¾ block to 558 St. Johns Place. FiveMyles is within easy walking distance from the Brooklyn Museum.
