> DESCRIPTION

Using a cartoon color palette and simple geometric shapes, recent Texas transplant Chrys Grummert generates hard-edged, abstracted landscapes with undeniable references to modern design. The compositions are situated somewhere between neo geo and color field painting, resulting in flat, curious scenes that bring to mind video games and science fiction sets with a wry nod to traditional landscape painting. The exhibition, Grummert’s first showing in Houston, will feature recent paintings alongside a site-specific, 3D abstracted landscape commissioned for this exhibition.

Chrys Grummert was born in Lincoln, NE in 1963. He received a BFA from the Otis College of Art and Design in 1994 and an MFA from the same school in 1996.  Recently, Grummert was selected to develop a billboard for a public art project currently on view in Austin, Texas. His work is also part of a group exhibition curated by Barbara MacAdam, Deputy Editor of ArtNews magazine, on view at Blue Star Contemporary in San Antonio. Also this year, Grummert’s work was included in Texas National 2012 curated by critic and author Dave Hickey. Grummert has also shown in New York and Los Angeles and his work is in a number of private collections throughout the United States. The artist currently lives in Wimberley, Texas.
