This Saturday, LeBasse Projects in Los Angeles will open Joshua Petker's newest body of work, Adrift. In a departure from his layered, textural, neon portrait paintings combining portrait and abstract styles, Petker's new exhibition features more conceptual, "nautical themed works as well as a companion series of portraits – still recognizable as the same artist but distinctively different paintings."
