RECENT WORKS
Thursday, 12 Apr, six to eight - May 12, 2007

Howard Scott Gallery is pleased to announce the opening - on Thursday, 12 April - of a two-person exhibition by Steve Riedell and Robert Thiele.



Steve Riedell:
Riedell's work can be described as relief paintings that employ primary forms – mostly horizontal and vertical elements with some diagonal members – to suggest architectural structure. The works employ a richly textured paint made with beeswax that is applied on unstretched canvas, which then is cut and applied to wooden armatures.
Recent works have gotten more ambiguous: the once sharp canvas edges now come into – and out of – focus beneath a waxy, rubbed-down skin that envelopes them. The effect partially reveals and partially hides that which it shrouds.
Mr. Reidell was educated in California, receiving his BA in 1982 at Art Center College of Design and his MA at Moorpark College. He has received numerous grants and prizes, including the Pollock/Krasner Grant in 2001 and the Elizabeth Grant in 2000. He lives and works in Philadelphia.



Robert Thiele:
Thiele's work of recent years years embrace physical aspects and formal concerns of both sculpture and painting. For a number of years he made works which were free-standing and involved such weighty materials as cast concrete. Recent works are all wall-sited, though they vary in scale from objects which could be held in one hand to planar structures with five foot dimensions.
A central concern to his artistic sensibility is the creation of the duality of a window-like opening which seems to promise the possibility of complete understanding, yet - as one draws close to it – withholds such knowledge via the use of a kind of scrim or veil. This duality which is inherent in more than one of Thiele's investigations began in 2003.
Thiele's a native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin – he divide's his time since 1994 between his studios in Dumbo, Brooklyn, NY and Miami, Florida in which he also teaches one semester a year.
