If you’re in the mood for some creative chaos, we suggest that you make some time to see Joe Reihsen’s About Face at The Hole. It is Reihsen’s first solo exhibition The Hole and he doesn’t disappoint. Heralded as the new voice of abstract painting, Reihsen’s aesthetic is an ecstatic whirlwind of strokes and colors anchored and focused only by quiet strength of its composition and painterly glitches.
But for all its scattered and serendipitous glory, our favorite piece in the exhibition is “You Were Reading Beloved on the A”—a tranquil all white piece with a playfully grid-like structure. In its deviation from the exhibition’s norm,”You Were Reading Beloved on the A” embodies the rebirth that Reihsen’s work is undergoing as a whole. Reihsen is redirecting his work into a new era of duality, About Face is the turning point. Do not miss it.
