James Jean’s first Los Angeles solo show “Rebus” opened this past weekend on March 12th at the Martha Otero Gallery in West Hollywood. The show features new paintings, sculptures, limited edition scarves, drawings, and sketchbook layouts. If your a fan of James’ work you have no doubt been following the stream of teaser images that have been popping up on various sites while this show drew closer. I often wish I was able to visit every show that caught my eye, but this has to be one of the shows I am truly going to regret not seeing in person. I cannot rave enough about how exciting his work has become in the past few years. The scale, color palettes, and the brushwork of these paintings just keep getting better and better. Giant Robot and Brandon Shigeta have photos from the reception, which really help to see the scale of some of the works.
