David's Pick

ArtList_2

It’s apt to say Brian Rideout makes art about making art, or more directly, art about keeping art. Many of his meticulously rendered oil paintings depict works by famous artists and those works’ surroundings, a hyperreal mirror of the homes of collectors. In this way the works become a viewing window into another space, an extension of the gallery or domicile in which they happen to be located. While the paintings are extremely well composed and deftly fashioned, a deeper subtext about the neutered role of art as decoration or status signifier peers through. Rideout’s pieces roil in this push-pull tension with the viewer, somewhere between winkingly garish and sublime.
