Jason Gringler: Dark Windows,
RH Contemporary Art

In a practice centered on industrial materials, Jason Gringler forges new territory for abstraction. Working with Plexiglas, aluminum tape, acrylic, mirrored glass, spray paint, epoxy, and wood, Gringler constructs layered works that reference the history of abstract painting—although the materials themselves stand in for the painterly gesture. Gringler is also known to allow frames, stretchers, and supports to intrude into his compositions, and he frequently cuts up photographs of his creations into new collages that serve as studies for future works. “The source and the result simultaneously become the same and not the same,” he has said of this latter tendency. “The original becomes lost as the language moves in a cyclical fashion.”
