Known for his monochromatic canvases which bring solitary figures into central focus, painter Joe Andoe continues to present viewers with ghostly ruminations on Americana and the sublime. Andoe reduces images to their blueprint, the focused result evoking negative space and phantom shadows akin to an x-ray. In Deep State, a pitch black horse rendered from quick brushstrokes barrels towards the foreground, kicking up spectral clouds of white dust behind it. The title refers to the concept introduced in contemporary politics, suggesting coordinated efforts to influence state policy without regard for democratically elected leadership. By juxtaposing toxic conspiratorial language pervading political dialogue with the classic American image of the majestic charger, Andoe calls into focus what defines us as a nation.
Framing option is black or white painted wood, 7/8” wide flat face and 7/8” deep, with UV acrylic glass.
