Come to the Laundry King for an opening reception for Joel Edwards: Applications from 4-6pm on Saturday, June 6. The exhibition will be up for public viewing on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 4pm through June 28.
The paintings of Catskills-based artist Joel Edwards are grounded in a casual formalism – a systematic and painterly approach that form a mash of early American appliqué quilt patterns and psychedelia. Although his paintings often emerge through the repetition of geometric forms, Edwards revels most in the imprecision that develops through his intuitive process. In addition to traditional American textile patterns and psychedelic graphic art, the work is also informed by the dilapidated architecture of the Catskills.
