Abandonment to Revelation, by Eddie Rehm

By Eddie Rehm
October 17th– 30th, 2011
Opening Reception: Friday, October 21st, 5-9pm
Artist Reception: Friday, October 28th, 5-9 pm

The Orchard Windows Gallery has invited celebrated New York artist, Eddie Rehm, back for his third solo exhibition.

"Instant Gratification  Abstract” is a term I use to describe my art and the style in which I present each piece,” says Rehm, when asked to describe his work.  Rehm’s art has been displayed throughout New York, Chicago, Milwaukee, and Pennsylvania, as well as in many local Art Leagues and Associations.  His work will also be displayed in the upcoming 2011 Art Basel Miami, alongside internationally renowned contemporary artists.

Abandonment to Revelation, is Rehm’s interpretation of today’s society, from the point-of view of living a life that many Americans are also currently enduring.  He has been abandoned, slandered, divorced, bankrupt, homeless, and jobless.  He has recently lost not just friends, but also family.  As a result the artist has suffered through many conflicting emotions simultaneously:  belligerence, anger, depravity, sorrow, indifference, and pain.  Consequently, art to Rehm is therapeutic—it’s his way of working through all of these recent personal, but somehow collective, tragedies.  Through artistic practice Rehm has been able to transcend and learn from these experiences. As a result, the work in this exhibition represents the artist’s journey towards his own personal enlightenment.

This exhibition is on view at the Orchard Windows Gallery, 37 Orchard St. between Hester St. and Canal St. on the Lower East Side.
The gallery is open from 11am-6pm daily.
