Take a Trip with Artist Andrew Schoultz and his Curated Group Show
The artists that Schoultz engages with in the exhibition are united by fluency in a variety of techniques; therefore, rather than mastery in one specific medium, they work across media to develop an original voice and ideas through any means possible. In many of the works in the show, political, cultural, and personal identities become hybridized, interrelated, and wrapped up in the works themselves.
The works included appear disparate, spanning materials, subjects and styles, from Terry Powers’s painting of a painting studio, to
The studio visits that inspired this show took place across the country, from Los Angeles, Berkeley, Chicago, New York, and San Francisco. As artists bounce ideas and techniques off of one another, styles and commonalities form, eventually becoming movements. This exhibition shows how works developing across the country become part of the contemporary cultural context. For an artist that lives and works in an urban environment, the studio visit becomes an important, yet rarely officially discussed activity that results in a dialogue with other artists, and often demonstrates how the work is connected to the personality of the artist themselves; as Schoultz comments, “Their art is a portrait of themselves in some way or another.”
