Description: Joe Amrhein is an American artist, b. 1953, from Sacramento, California. He is currently based in Brooklyn, New York. Amrhein works mainly with text on a variety of media. He is currently represented by Jochen Hempel Gallery in Berlin and Leipzig; and he has exhibited widely in Europe and the US. This piece from 2001 is made available from a Private Collection who collected his work early on. It features 10 plates, 6 x 30 in. (15.2 x 76.2 cm.) each. The dimensions once installed are approximately: 72 x 30 in. (182.9 x 76.2 cm.). Amrhein used enamel and gold on glass for this work; and he's titled it, "A Cacophany". Artist Statement: "My work is a combination of different disciplines? physically, it comes out of painting but the context is conceptual. I use language, text, and font icons as my primary subject with reference to sign painting which gives this language scale and vitality and comes out of my background as a sign painter. The materials I paint on, glass and vellum, besides being traditional surfaces for signs, give me the option to develop the text with a metaphorical contentnotions of density, fracturing, memory and shadows as ephemera, among others. The source for most of the text in this work is appropriated, critical art writing, magazines, newspapers and other sources. The notion that this language replaces the context is describing and replacing an idea or something concrete with abstract language is very interesting to me, but bringing this abstract notion of language back into a visual art is even more interesting. The use of translation, cyphers and codes and the fallibility of perception is new to the work. Quoting Robert Smithson, 'One must remember that writing on art replaces presence by absence by substituting the abstraction of language for the real thing.' Some of the text I compose is not meant to be read but is used almost as an artifact, because it is so highly fragmented." - Joe Amrhein.
