Kent Merriman Jr. Ignominious Dec 1, 2017 - Jan 12, 2018

Kent Merriman Jr.

I like the idea of most people not knowing my painting is photographed here, also the fact that it looks so disregarded that the painting becomes humiliated.

Kent Merriman Jr. (b. 1985) lives and works in Calgary.
This is his first solo exhibition in Los Angeles.
