Press release

Michael Kohn Gallery is pleased to announce its first solo show with Los Angeles-based artist, Nathan Redwood. Redwood's large-scale paintings tell a story of abstraction versus representation while based on a landscape composition. The remnants of objects that define our everyday existence are often the subjects of these paintings, but not as we know them. They are treated as objects that can be seen as surrogate figures; at the same time they are basic objects and building materials that mirror the artist "building" the painting. These almost surreal landscapes force the viewer to sort through the rubble and uncover the mystery of these dark and complex narratives.

Redwood's worlds are created out of a surreal, illusory visual vocabulary that distorts the representational space, initially disorienting the viewer. The palette and flatness of the brushstrokes evokes the stylized worlds of graphic novels, while simultaneously referencing the artist's art historical influences from the Baroque, to the Surrealists to the Abstract Expressionists.
