Peanut Gallery is pleased to present the work of Jesse Hlebo in a solo exhibition entitled Still, Life. Addressing the themes of fear, value and loss, rejection and pain, Hlebo’s work is a result of multiple processes of mediation and removal; layering damage upon damage and challenging notions of what defines the seemingly perfect nature of mass-reproduction. For his exhibition, Hlebo utilizes screen prints, videos, and audio to create a focused viewing experience in a subtly frustrating environment.
Jesse Hlebo (b. 1988) is an artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He has had solo and group exhibitions across the U.S. and in Japan.
