Come see new paintings by Jon Rehwoldt at Outhouse Gallery.
” In his inaugural outing, Jon Rehwoldt presents a group of paintings about the disparity between saturation and the void. Rehwoldt simultaneously exploits modernist abstraction and elements of cult cinema to make works that reference the contemporary moment as well histories, both personal and painterly. Computer generated mutations collide with painted passages on decidedly analog supports.
By referencing/utilizing paint and printed textile, he avoids the aesthetic usually associated with the Internet age and creates a slow digital reveal. These technical paintings work in direct opposition to meditative pieces to establish a dialogue about the over saturation of entertainment medias and the futile attempt to relieve oneself of it and find solace.”
