DESCRIPTION

ACME. is pleased to present a solo exhibition featuring new acrylic paintings on canvas and linen by Los Angeles based artist Josh Peters. Interested in making paintings that evoke a sense of inevitability, Peters attempts to harness the tension between opposing forces in his work, from the conscious and the unconscious, to the accidental and the very deliberate. The paintings are started by wetting the painting the back of the canvas or linen (thus seeping through to what will become the front) and the adding additional elements and textures. in this way a great sense of unpredictability unfolds in Peters work, enabling an amalgamation of naked process and careful planning.

Josh Peters received his BFA from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and his MFA from the Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University. Peters has had solo exhibitions at the Torrance Art Museum, Torrance, CA, Schuebbe Projects in Dusseldorf, Germany, Kaycee Olsen Gallery, Los Angeles, CA and Sara Nightingale Gallery, Water Mill, New York.
