‘Entropy: Joe Mckenna Solo Exhibition’.
Curated by Alexandra Cavaye & Calum Crowther.
The Fresh Meat Gallery Presents ‘Entropy’ a solo exhibition showcasing new work by the contemporary painter Joe McKenna taking place at the LCB Depot, 31 Rutland Street, Leicester LE1 1RE.
The opening night was on Friday the 9th of August from 5pm until 7pm. The exhibition will ran until the 22nd of August.
Entropy is a measure of the number of specific ways in which a system may be arranged, often taken to be a measure of disorder. The exhibition explores these ideas in the context of whether what we are doing within industry is part of the chaos in the first place or rather is it just the order of things which are neither negative or positive.
Joe Mckenna born in 1987, currently lives in Nottingham where he works in acrylic paint and ink. His practice is based on the notion of opposites, he attempts to connote the equal harshness of both nature and man made structures by placing them side by side below a shroud of beautiful and foreboding cloudscapes.
Rather than a glorification of might and supremacy of human progress he finds it more fitting to highlight and contemplate our own fragility amongst our surroundings.
Throughout the exhibition Joe created a new painting live in the exhibition space.
The exhibition opened on the Friday 9th of August at 5pm – 7pm and finished on the 22nd of August.
