Home@735 Gallery is pleased to announce that artist Leo Coyte will be exhibiting a suite of paintings in our September show.
“…his practice draws on the painterly potential of formal incongruity, merging realistic renderings of semi-figurative objects and bodies with bursts of colour and abstraction. Coyte imparts a sense of celebratory irreverence through his art making process by mining bits and pieces of the various painting traditions that interest him. The images that arise out of the push-and-pull of this process read as absurd open-ended narratives, giving rise to a collection of protagonists derived from a subconscious assemblage of fictions and memories…”
Pictured is Bumbhead #5, 2016, oil and acrylic on linen. Leo Coyte is represented by Nicholas Thompson Gallery.
