1301PE is pleased to announce its first solo exhibition with New York-based artist Blake Rayne.

\n

The painting doesn&rsquo\;t exist solely a s a material object but as a vehicle with which to articulate a conceptual idea&mdash\;a practice continually being shaped by linguistic\, institution al and physical relations and not defined by any static or ahistorical defi nition that might characterize painting as purely visual. &mdash\; Mar ina Cashdan

\n

Blake Rayne&rsquo\;s work has been \;pivotal in the resurgence of conceptual painting over the l ast twenty years. Rayne has used compositional systems as an \;organizi ng principle along with an inherent semantic play \;to create paintings . \;Employing diverse techniques\, Rayne weaves personal\, art historic al\, and formal narratives to explore the many contexts in which painting c an be seen and understood. The goal is to simultaneously establish a pictor ial order and to destroy it. \;

\n

& nbsp\;Blake Rayne was born in Lewes\, Delaware. He has had recent solo exhi bitions at Campoli Presti\, London\; Sutton Lane\, Paris and Miguel Abreu G allery\, New York. His work is represented in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art\, New York and Fonds Regional d&rsquo\;Art Contemp orain\, France. Selected group exhibitions include Langen Foundation\, Thom as Dane Gallery\, Kunsthalle Bergen\, Metro Pictures\, Artists Space and Le Confort Moderne.
