Los Angeles, CA - DENK gallery is pleased to present all new works by Andrew Schoultz in Vessels the artist's first solo exhibition with DENK and his first in Los Angeles since 2015. His exhibition will take up the entire gallery space with mix paintings, sculpture and works on paper.
The exhibition includes artworks ranging in size from smaller works on paper to large multi-panel paintings that almost cover an entire wall of the gallery. The diversity of works
Andrew Schoultz densely layered artworks explore patterns in history related to war, natural disasters, and globalization. His work lacks overt references to singular historical events, but rather explores collective unrest, pulling from disparate global affairs and histories.
Although the artist’s themes are unequivocally universal, the work is instantly recognizable through Schoultz’s distinctive, illustrative style. The broad range of visual elements in the artist’s work speaks not only of Schoultz’s conglomerated themes and influences, but also points to the artist’s interest in the cyclical nature of history, as illustrated through his juxtaposition of primitive and modern symbolism.
There is always a lot to see in an Andrew Schoultz exhibition with his complex and interweaving stories. Each work in the show tells its own story yet at the same time all the works together in the exhibition create an overall narrative that can only be experienced when seeing the works in person.
