In Jurell’s first solo show, Postcards, his body of work concentrates on storytelling based on everyday experience. He uses an expressive color palette to bring liveliness to moments that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. The stories he tells focus on the lives of his peers and those around him, creating images that convey a sense of familiarity and comfort.
