Photo blog of installation photos from an exhibition of paintings by Jon Pestoni at David Kordansky Gallery, Los Angeles, on view through January 12, 2013.
The gallery notes that "each work is comprised of a number of procedural ‘moves’, many of which are designed to partially cancel or obscure prior attempts to arrive at a harmonious composition. The paintings’ dry-brushed surfaces contain what would otherwise function as disparate information, allowing for each to be read as a single image even though they include broad swaths, active brushwork, and drips and splatters."
