John Riepenhoff at Marlborough LES

I visited Marlborougho Gallery in New York’s Lower East Side to see paintings by Wisconsin native John Riepenhoff, who exhibited works, both large and small, from a series of plein air paintings that he made under nightime skies in various locations (mostly in Wisconsin but also in Miami and other locals). The paint is thinly applied, and poured, to create an arresting, atmospheric effect reminiscent of Morris Louis’ abstract canvases.
