ALBERT OEHLEN • New Paintings
Gagosian Gallery, Beverly Hills, CA
June 6th - July 18th, 2014
These are landscapes and visual diaries - written with line, painted with aqueous color fields and collaged with printed pop art media.
They traffic in the space they’re created and their lines and flat fields make use of the room they’re exhibited in.
The art they most remind me of is:
The pop art essays of James Rosenquist and the ethnic visual diaries of Jean-Michel Basquiat.
However, you might want to take a look at them for yourself and decide. I think people used to dealing with Commercial Art will have a hard time with them because they will ask you to look beyond the obvious, to how the color is applied, to where the lines are going and most importantly to how the art extends off the wall, into the room and into your life.
