Josh Reames

Josh Reames’s work considers abstraction and painting in relation to the Internet, and is informed by the strange, new space where a majority of viewership takes place online through blogs and websites. In these paintings, depth, dimension, and the artist's hand are typically lost in translation from object to image, allowing the information to exist as it might appear on a digital screen. Reames' conceptual framework functions as a kind of filtration device for cultural byproduct and its attending relativism, literally flattening a compendium of signs, text and symbols, cultural objects and icons to the same-level composition—thereby removing their hierarchy.




Reames has exhibited in a number of institutions and galleries, including LVL3, Devening Projects, Andrew Rafacz, Hyde Park Art Center, and the Union League Club, Chicago, The Hole, Muelensteen, and Monya Rowe Gallery, New York, Circuit 12 Contemporary, Dallas, and Dittrich & Schlechtriem, Berlin, among others. In 2012, Reames was artist-in-residence at Ox Bow (funded by Joan Mitchell Foundation) in Saugatuck, Michigan.
