Reverse Painting on Plexiglas
The Kyle Ringquist Gallery is proud to announce winning the Silver Award for best galleries on Cape Cod from Cape Cod Life Magazine.
We would like to thank you all for your continued support and invite you to stop by and view Kyle Ringquist's latest work.
“Kyle Ringquist does reverse painting on plexiglas using an electric palate: fire engine red, hot pinks, bold yellows. A practice that began in Asia and was popular in North America in the Nineteenth Century, reverse painting has a long folk tradition. Ringquist’s work, however, is more in line with that of Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, and Robert Rauschenberg, all of whom experimented with the reverse painting at one time or another with brilliant results. In “Winter Bouquet”, for example, Ringquist paints flower petals, then greenery. The bouquet is set in front of a marble of blue, brown, orange, and mossy green. The acrylic creates a tapestry of color. The surface of the work is the pane of plexiglas and the work is a window to itself. The work is shiny and luminous full of rich colors and brilliant strokes.”
