2014 Settlers: New Paintings by Jon Reischl The Phipps Center for the Arts Hudson, WI Details

20 paintings examining the nature of memory and the presence of mind through a cast of enigmatic characters and improbable settings.

Through a method of compilation, regression and refinement, I mimic in technique, and attempt to capture aesthetically, the cognitive process of human memory. Working in layers with overlapping imagery, each new piece of information visually redefines and subjectively recontextualizes the existing shapes and lines. What start out as distinct images signifying moments, ideas, and all manner of empirical data, transform into something infinitely more complicated when compounded and considered together.

2010 An Evening of the Odds Nicademus Gallery St. Paul, MN Details

March 6th - April 6th, 2010 at Nicademus Art for An Evening of the Odds: New Works by Jon Reischl.

The show's title, An Evening of the Odds, with it's glib multi-entendre, is consistent with Reischl's fondness for wordplay, but also suggestive of the sense of resigned struggle present in much of his work. His subjects often seem to be, in one way or another, at odds with their surroundings, yet also at relative ease, as if to imply that there is contentment to be found amongst the chaos.

Reischl's work covers familiar thematic ground, exploring the role of Creator by offering up the interpretive reigns to his audience. And in the case of his Variable Title paintings, blatantly encouraging them to physically interact with the pieces.

Group/Juried Exhibitions

2017 Beauty in Chaos Squirrel Haus Arts Minneapolis, MN Details
From the exhibition notes:
This group exhibition explores the beauty in chaos, emphasizing the dynamic relationships between order and disorder. Each work reflects how change, time, tension, and ease manifests itself into something new, and wonderful. By presenting multiple perspectives, the show explores how to find balance in each of these spaces, creating a conversation that alters the viewer’s perspective on chaos and empowers them to create their own definition.
