JASON ROHLF makes vibrant and textured acrylic and collage paintings. Layers are painted over and over again; the final result hints at a hidden history as traces of previous layers are revealed as texture. City streets, digital media, and maps have been important influences of Rohlf’s work. Projects include a collaboration with Oehme Graphics where he created the “Field Guides Print Project” that included a suite of unique monotypes and solar plate editions, and most recently a screenprinted edition for Folioleaf. His current project, ‘The Shop Rag Project’ will be featured in August 2018 at the gallery.
Originally from Milwaukee, Rohlf moved to Brooklyn in 1999. He was exhibited his work across the United States, created a public installation for the MTA, and has lectured for the Pratt Institute, Bowling Green University and Lawrence University among others. He is the recipient of the Sam and Adelle Golden Foundation for the Arts Artist in Residency.
