Jed currently has several paintings on display and for sale at C.H.A.P.S (Caribbean Heritage Arts Preservation Society) Museum and Community Resource Center–located at 1529-39 Belfield Avenue in Philadelphia, PA (USA).
Jed has started to do paintings depicting semi-abstract faces representing states of mind and the ambivalence and difficulty of trying to pinpoint a specific “emotion” or state of mind. Also simultaneously he is trying to reassess the legacy of Pop art by playing around with words/letters/symbols and turning them into sculptural shapes/forms instead of just flat signifiers.
Jed will be exhibiting his new “Neon Luscious” painting series at Giant Steps Picture Framing, located at 229 S. 20th St. (on 20th St. between Locust St. and Chancellor St.) . The exhibit runs from June 8 to July 8. The frameshop’s hours are 11am-6pm Tuesday through Friday. The opening reception will take place on Friday June 8 from 5-8pm. Here are some of the paintings in the series:
