Royal Jarmon

April 10th – May 6th, 2018

OPENING: Tuesday, April 10th, from 6-9pm

The Hole is psyched to announce the first solo show by artist Royal Jarmon in our big back gallery. Transforming the room with black brick walls, the artist will hang eight new paintings of fire escapes, a frequent theme in his work of the past few years. Blurred distance, extreme perspective and bizarre juxtapositions characterize these works where debris congregates on New York City fire escapes from stray shoes to dead plants, playing cards and milk crates, beer and oranges.
