Andy Rementer "Meet Me Later" @ Mondo Cane
April 2014 cover artist Andy Rementer will be returning to Mondo Cane in NYC with his third solo show of new and previously un-shown paintings and drawings on Thursday, May 1st. The "Meet Me Later" series transports us to seemingly familiar street corners, interiors and subway platforms populated by characters caught in frozen moments of furtive activity. The work has a timeless quality which seems to draw from influences as diverse as Léger, The Italian Renaissance and even the narrative economy of Raymond Carver. Ambigiuous narratives connect the work, while Rementer's use of bold colour, street signage, and textile pattern create further layers and stories of their own.
Andy Rementer is an award winning Graphic Artist from USA. He grew up in a Victorian beach town where an early exposure to the sun faded, local signage educated his love of type and hand-painted lettering. A sense of timelessness and nostalgia permeate his visual world. Another reoccurring theme of Rementer’s work is isolation, something he cites as an effect of his abrupt relocation to an urban environment in formative years and often depicted in his work through his characters’ underlying unease. He graduated from The University of the Arts in 2004. After working with Fabrica in northern Italy, he relocated to the East Coast where he divides his time between drawing, painting, and developing his first graphic novel.
