ROB REYNOLDS: OVERVIEW

29 April - 4 June 2021

Anthony Meier Fine Arts is pleased to present Rob Reynolds: Overview, the artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. With a focus on ecology and human-caused climate change, Reynolds' paintings seek to make the unseen visible. 

Overview takes its name from the overview effect – a total shift in consciousness typically experienced by astronauts when they see Earth from space for the first time. This is evident in Reynolds’ Earthrise paintings, which are based on the famous photo taken by William Anders, an astronaut on the Apollo 8 mission in 1968 as they were heading back to earth from a trip around the moon. This is one of the most famous images in the history of photography and credited as having launched the ecology movement for many environmentalists. The exhibition is also an ‘overview’ of Reynolds’ work over the past ten years.

Magnolia (2021) depicts the Magnolia tree that stood on the south lawn of the Whitehouse for almost 200 years, which was cut down a year into the Trump presidency. Initially planted by Andrew Jackson in memory of his late wife, the Magnolia tree has greeted countless dignitaries over the past two centuries.

It was later depicted in the $20 bill, and President Obama famously gave a seedling to the people of Cuba. "I was thinking of it as a kind of witness tree," notes the artist in a 2021 interview. "Maybe time caught up with it."

Mount Shasta (2021) is part of an ongoing series of mountain paintings by the artist that addresses mountains and the popular imagination. This new painting of Mt. Shasta adds to the series that includes Everest, the Matterhorn, K2, Artesonraju, the Paramount Pictures mountain, and Mt. Fuji.

Addressing the idea of the sublime and alpine kitsch on the one hand and drinking water for two billion people on the other, Mount Shasta reads like an image in a photo, on the Internet, or a screen from afar, but as you get closer, you're faced with the pure materiality of the paint on the support, and ultimately something that was made by a searching human hand.

"I found myself gripped by the aesthetic appeal of Reynolds’ depictions of nature, and struck by the feeling that what I was looking at were philosophical investigations carried out in the genre of painting."

Reynolds' paintings of the sun are equal parts a loving homage to California light and space artists, abstract color field painting, movie Westerns, and the sun itself; beautiful and magnetic, but at the same time, unsettling. For the artist, the sun is a theme he has returned to again and again as a subject that everyone can relate to, a way of bringing people together in uncertain times.

Reynolds' Iceberg paintings are part of an ongoing series the artist has developed over the past decade. Each image presented in these works looks like a stock photograph but is layered with finely detailed painting and meaning. Painted from a still frame of a video that the artist shot in Greenland for the Berggruen Institute in 2019 to record the sound of the Greenland ice sheet melting, the painting captures the awe and wonder of this lone iceberg seemingly standing frozen in time, but with the knowledge that what you see before you no longer exists in the same way today.

“The effect of Reynolds’ paintings is that both humans and nature cease to exist –– cease to exist as being the seeing thing, cease to exist as indexes of a sublime nature and what emerges is a new kind of beauty,” notes Rees. “Instead both humans and nature become something else, something still tentative, explorative, experimental: they become planetary.”

"When the weather and environment is a constant matter of life and death, it effectively collapses the distinct categories of the human and nature.  When you think about it enough to feel it, it’s a bit like the overview effect might feel, but you only have to go outside."

"The hope is that when you're 20 paces away, the image is coherent and hangs together in a unified way, and might make you think about seeing an image in a photo, on the Internet, or on a screen. As you get closer, you're faced with just the pure materiality: the ugliness of the paint on a support in some cases, lusciousness in others, but ultimately something that was made by a searching human hand."

Seeing Nature (After The Human): On Painting As Philosophy by Tobias Rees

SEEING NATURE (AFTER THE HUMAN)

ON PAINTING AS PHILOSOPHY

by Tobias Rees

 

I vividly remember my first visit to Rob Reynolds’ studio.

 

There were the, almost disturbing, brown-blue tones of glacial runoff and pooling produced by the melting ice of a South American alpine glacier; the shades of blue that give his paintings of floating icebergs and shipwrecks, stuck in and overgrown by ice, an unusual vivacity.

 

I found myself gripped by the aesthetic appeal of Reynolds’ depictions of nature, and struck by the feeling that what I was looking at were philosophical investigations carried out in the genre of painting.

 

Reynolds’ icebergs, glaciers, shipwrecks, botanicals and suns are contemporary studies of seeing, of how we have come to see –– and experience –– nature. What is more, they are explorations of how to see differently, of how to constitute oneself through the act of seeing.

A Conversation With Rob Reynolds and Emma Cline

A Conversation With Rob Reynolds and Emma Cline

 

Emma

So, let's talk about the title of the show Overview.

 

Rob

The show is a small survey of the categories of painting I have been doing during the past ten years or so, much of it circling around an interest in ecology, landscape, the environment and perception – hence the Earthrise image. And Overview is also a reference to a feeling some astronauts report when they see the earth from space for the first time.

                                                                                          

Emma

What happens?

 

Rob

It’s been called the overview effect, and sounds like an explosion of awareness. The astronauts might blast off as patriotic Americans of whatever faith, but when they see the fragile, pale blue world in a limitless universe, they are instantly overcome with an awesome sense of wonder, feeling of unity with nature, universal kinship with other human beings and the earth as a whole. A psychologist described it as a state of interconnected euphoria.

Press Release

PRESS RELEASE

 

 

Anthony Meier Fine Arts is pleased to announce Rob Reynolds: Overview, the artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, on view 29 April  –  4 June. With a focus on ecology and human-caused climate change, Reynolds projects seek to make the unseen visible. The exhibition is accompanied by an essay by Tobias Rees  (Director, Berggruen Institute), and an interview between the artist and Emma Cline (Author, The Girls).

 

Overview takes its name from the overview effect – a total shift in consciousness typically experienced by astronauts when they see Earth from space for the first time. This is evident in Reynolds’ Earthrise paintings, which are based on the famous photo taken by William Anders, an astronaut on the Apollo 8 mission in 1968 as they were heading back to earth from a trip around the moon. It is one of the most famous images in the history of photography, and credited as having launched the ecology movement for many environmentalists. The exhibition is also an ‘ overview’ of Reynolds’ work over the past ten years.
