Statement from Artist, Jeremy Allen Rheault
"Artists are always looking looking for creative surfaces. Cardboard, old artist prints, and maps rarely fit into that category. I was inspired by one of my favorite artist styles, Philip Burke, an amazing painter/illustrator. I grew up with his Rolling Stone magazine celebrity portraits and looked forward to each one during my high school and college days. His elaborate colors, distortions and exaggerations of famous rockers and celebrities with a clean white background always interested me.
I am also inspired by the current social and cultural awareness of personas or events. I also try to introduce art history and provoke research and awareness of artists or historical figures past and present.
I find the speed that I’m capable of producing these portraits to be quite a creative outlet for me. The layers of paint and the texture that the oil pastels leave are keys to my work. I am looking for multiple layers and media with each piece. I am also intensely interested in scale and presentation."There will be a free reception celebrate the work of Jeremy Allen Rehault at the Village Theater on Wednesday, December 5, 2018 from 7:00 - 9:30 pm. "Food for the Soul" posters created by Dennis Loren will be available for purchase at the reception.
