Ok, I know it's so damn corny to quote somebody just to describe yourself, let alone Confucius, but this quote says all about my relationship with Widewalls, so forgive me for doing this: Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Am I forgiven?

Joe Reich is an American artist known for his large format paintings – sort of a visual exploration of the urban landscape.

Reich juxtaposes elements of the photography against the tactile application of different types of color. He uses dyes, pigment, acrylics, resins, oil paints and glazes. The original photographic imagery is almost always hidden behind layers of brush stroke and effacement. Even though the final result is extensive layered artwork, at the same time it is very much singular in content.

Reich is represented by Matthew Rachman Gallery.

Joe Reich lives and works in Chicago.
