For perfect pint sized bites of Americana, enjoy these paintings by James Rieck. The artist just closed a solo show at New York’s Lyons Wier Gallery, entitled On Location, which we really enjoyed. Recently, the artist moved from his long time residence in Baltimore to bustling downtown LA, where he undoubtedly latched onto a well of inspiration. The paintings in On Location, seen here amongst a small selection of Rieck’s work, were painted from digitally composited imagery sourced from advertisements and commercial catalogues, magically transporting us away from where we are. The comfort therein lies in a universal displacement, a feeling of serenity.
