Slap Happy #1
DIMENSIONS 12" x 9" MEDIUM collaged inkjet print on acrylic and ink hand-touched paper
Series of 10, 2019
Signed by the artist en verso
Working from cut pieces from his limited edition print with Exhibition A, Slap Happy (2019), Josh Jefferson created a series of 10 collaged works composed of pigment prints layered on unique hand-painted backgrounds. The composition remains anchored by one of Jefferson enigmatic characters, who are at once obviously figural and irreverently not.
Jefferson has recently mounted solo exhibitions with Zevitas Marcus (Los Angeles), Steven Zevitas Gallery (Boston), Gallery 16 (San Francisco), and TURN Gallery (New York City). In 2019, he received the highest level of Artist Fellowship from the Massachusetts Cultural Council in Painting.
