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
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.
