Christopher Grimes Gallery is pleased to present inbetween, an exhibition of new work by Joshua Podoll. In his previous exhibition, Podoll incorporated the use of hard, delineated, and often, fetishized edges with synthetic forms. With his new body of work, Podoll introduces new phrases into his lexicon of painting. One such element is the gestural brushstroke a la abstract expressionism. With this, Podoll believes the mark reflects what it is to be alive by adding a sense of honesty through imperfection. Podoll considers his work to be a formal study in painting, and seeks to weave together a cohesive oeuvre with elements from his previous works in hopes of creating a dialogue within his paintings. This is Joshua Podoll's second solo exhibition with the gallery.
Joshua Podoll was born in Seattle in 1972. He has exhibited at the University of lowa Museum of Art, Iowa City, IA (2002); Retreat, Peres Projects, Los Angeles (2003); as well as Without Sun, Christopher Grimes Gallery, Santa Monica, curated by Carole Ann Klondarides. His work will also be featured in two forthcoming exhibitions: Populate This Form, Feature Inc., New York and You Can Heal Your Life!, Circus Gallery, Los Angeles, curated by Emma Gray. Podoll currently lives and works in San Francisco.
