Holly Johnson Gallery will present "Painting," an exhibition of gouaches and painted paper constructions by Los Angeles-based artist, Matt Rich.

Rich’s work combines a range of materials to implicate objects and architecture in ways that challenge the definitions of painting’s supports and surfaces. The integration of alternative support structures and flat compositions complicates the relationship between painted and sculptural space.

Rich’s gouaches are process-based compositions built by layering colors and shapes in traditional frames as well as in handmade wooden constructions. The compositions capture overlapping forms combined with surprising color combinations that are rooted in abstraction and process.

Similarly, Rich’s shaped collage paintings are meticulous constructions crafted from painted, cut, and joined pieces of canvas. Their irregular shaped borders and not-quite-flat surfaces directly implicate the surrounding architecture.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through December 22.
