East London gallery Hoxton 253 presents Paper-Scissors-Rock, a solo exhibition by American collage artist Brian Reinker, opening on 21 November.
Working in the language of landscape and topography, Brian Reinker is an artist whose colourful abstractions depict real and imagined places with the disciplined approach of an architect, using crisp lines and extreme precision.
The graphic and geometric elements Reinker uses to create cityscapes, coastlines, mountains and buildings are rendered in ways that share his own emotional response to the landscape. His aim is to distil the essence of these places, using a variety of techniques and media – including paint, ink, and paper collage on aluminium panels.
For this exhibition, his first solo show in London, Reinker has been focused on working with hand cut paper, vinyl and foil to create multi-layered works of varying sizes. He will be unveiling new collage works inspired by city life, including his “Facade” and “Sky” series of urban landscapes, which will be displayed alongside new large scale pieces from his new “Horizon” series.
Paper-Scissors-Rock, a solo exhibition by Brian Reinker, is at Hoxton 253 art project space, 253 Hoxton Street, London N1 5LG, from 21 to 23 November.
