“Making navigational decisions is subjective to the individual and the inputs are sometimes contradictory. Through a combination of deliberate action and intuition the works hope to reflect back the myriad choices we all are confronted with on a daily basis.” ~ Jason Rohlf
Milwaukee native, Brooklyn based artist Jason Rohlf returns with his new exhibition “Navigational Aids.” Rohlf’s quest to document his visual sensibilities continues in these acrylic and collage paintings. Like a palimpsest the works’ many traces of earlier layers are noticeable. The end results are visual reminders or clues telling how important certain influences have been. Over the years his process allows the body of work to act as a stop action time line slowly revealing the newly favored elements and influences only to see them recede and evolve. Rohlf had work in MIAD’s Coexist collage exhibit and the windows he was commissioned for by New York’s Metropolitan Transit authority can be seen at the Mott Avenue subway station.
Navigational Aids will include large paintings and his popular “Shop Rag” works. This is Rohlf’s 6th solo exhibition with Tory Folliard Gallery.
