Through additive and reductive elements, New York-based artist, Nathan Ritterpusch blurs the oil paint to enhance his themes of sexuality and longing in the eight images in this exhibition, four of which are part of his long-standing series “Old English to Be My Mother.”

New York-based artist, Eric Freeman ~ a master colorist ~ allows only ‘varietal hues’ to speak to his process. His 2-dimensional oil paintings often exude a 3-dimensional illusory quality, emerging into brilliant and boundless fields that speak for themselves in the 13 images on view in this exhibition.

Brooklyn-based artist, Brian Willmont evokes a sense of digital manipulation based in illusory and thematic elements, primarily through the use of trump l’oeil techniques, airbrush, and symbolism that evokes sentiments of nostalgia. Through his use of this imagery, he explores the juxtaposition existing in our natural environment, while living in a digitally focused world, with the 7 images included in this exhibition.

A 3 Person Show: Eric Freeman, Nathan Ritterpusch, Brian Willmont will be on view January 31, 2019, with an Opening Reception from 6-9pm. Allouche Gallery is located at 82 Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District.
