Press release

Almine Rech Gallery is pleased to present Rainbow Road Part 2, an exhibition of paintings by the New York based painter Joe Andoe. This is the artist’s first solo show with Almine Rech Gallery, featuring all new works created between 2017 and 2018.

Serving as a sequel of sorts to Andoe’s 2016 film Rainbow Road, the exhibition speaks to the dogged consistency of an iconic artist whose paintings have always remained fresh over the past forty years, due in part to the virtuosic energy with which he has continually refined his process, using a signature technique by which he paints thickly then wipes away the excess paint to dreamlike effect.

There is a timeless quality to Andoe’s paintings, and an incorrigible insouciance to the way he paints—a lingering trace of the prankster who refuses to conform, as he continues to paint the same subjects over and over again, bucking the vagaries of fashion and remaining true to his vision: forever following the rainbow road.
