New Works by Les Joynes

21 January - 12 March 2011

This is Joynes’ first exhibition with 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel New York and presents an important new phase in his depiction of imagined sites, heavenly bodies and floating archeo-cognitive elements. In his paintings Les Joynes fuses artifacts of memory he collects from imagined topographies. His current ring paintings are baroque and rococo gateways inspired by Alain Resnais’ 1961 film Last Year at Marienbad. For him the circular motifs were “structures that floated to the surface in my memory like life preservers floating in after a storm at sea”
