Joe Reihsen

"Aftermarket Interior, Factory Paint"

September 13 - October 25, 2014

Anat Ebgi is pleased to announce Aftermarket Interior, Factory Paint, a solo exhibition of new works by Joe Reihsen opening September 13 and on view until October 25, 2014.

Aftermarket Interior, Factory Paint is Joe Reihsen’s third solo exhibition with Anat Ebgi, and his first show in the newly expanded gallery space. In his previous show, Clean Title, No Accidents, Reihsen focused on an intimate scale of works, akin to the size of a computer screen or sheet of paper. For this exhibition, Reihsen continues his exploration of the medium of paint, but on large-scale surfaces. Each panel deftly synthesizes three particular methods that Reihsen utilizes— the background stripes, gestural swathes of gesso emphasized with pneumatic painting devices, and the newest addition of paint “skins” applied to the top most layer of the abstraction.

The amalgamation of Reihsen’s techniques creates panels that are entrenched in the language of abstract painting, while still exerting their relationship to contemporary digital culture. Like the ubiquitous digital screen, each of Reihsen’s panels contains a profound sense of physical depth while remaining almost entirely flat. Aftermarket Interior, Factory Paint is a collection of Joe Reihsen’s most sophisticated works in which the tensions between abstraction, digital technology and industrial materials are collapsed into monumental paintings.

Joe Reihsen (b. 1979. Blaine, Minnesota) lives and works in Los Angeles. Joe received his BFA in painting and New Genres at the San Francisco Art Institute. In 2008, Joe received an MFA from the University of California, Santa Barbara where he was awarded the UC Regents Fellowship. Recent exhibitions include a solo presentation at Miart Milan. Upcoming exhibitions include a solo shows at Brand New Gallery, Milan titled Factory Paint, Aftermarket Interior, and Praz-Delavallade, Paris.
