JOHN NEWSOM
RINUS VAN DE VELDE 

JULY 2 – AUGUST 27, 2016
OPENING RECEPTION: JULY 2, 6:00 - 8:00 PM 

Patrick Painter is pleased to present it’s Summer exhibition featuring John Newsom and Rinus Van de Velde, paired for their ambition in scale and scope. Calling attention to rare works created early in their careers, this exhibition reveals vital moments in each artists’ use of skilled techniques to challenge conventions of pictorial space.

This exhibition will showcase two of Newsom’s most nuanced and compelling paintings displaying active tensions between representational painting and hard-edged abstraction. In works such as Courtly Gestures (1998), teenager-sized birds and foliage are rendered with Audubon-grade care. The hard abstract spheres in the background are painted last and just as tenderly as the paintings’ more nameable inhabitants, oddly seeming no less sentient. Upon closer view, surprise impasto incidents are stacked respectfully near hair-thin lines making it awesomely unclear which form is the fresher party.
