Our oversaturated world painted by Josh Reames

Josh Reames compiles various images of different textures and paints them into his non-narrative paradigm artworks. The paintings relay a sense of over saturation while retaining balance based on the way our ever-polarizing world is portrayed through the internet and social media. He uses primarily airbrush techniques to lay down his paint also uses classical brushes in order to retain a variety of mark-making. He describes his work with an analogy: “…you are scrolling down through articles and headlines, and it will be like “30 dead, suicide bombing in the Gaza strip,” and the next one is a video of a cat, but it’s all equalized on this platform. It’s really weird. I think about painting in a similar way, where images, marks, art historical references, and everyday objects are all depicted on the same level, contained in the same rectangle, emerging out of one painting and into another.” Scroll through his unique and ambitious compositions and exhibition photos below!
