Carl Rauschenbach (CR) – WORKS/FIRST at Known Gallery

October 19 2010 . 03:23am

Known Gallery is honored to present "WORKS/FIRST", a collection of new abstract work by Carl Rauschenbach (CR) based on a continuation of a theme he has been developing since 2004.

Referencing Sign Painting, Typography and Graffiti as a point of departure, CR reinterprets the letterform into his own abstract language and now finds himself sampling his own work to create new bold and intimate forms within the picture frame. Influences include Josef Albers from the Bauhaus (1920 – 1933), Phase2 known as the originator of bubble letters or “softies” from New York graffiti in the1970’s.

In early 2010 CR met PUSH for the first time at Known Gallery while working on the installation of two major shows. Following the gallery’s inaugural Haze x Stussy show, the “Freedom Show”, is when CR and PUSH exhibit work together for the first time. Long time graffiti legend Eric Haze, who initially introduced the two, says: “I saw a lot of parallels in both of their styles and the economy of how they executed their ideas… Plus, I also had a strong feeling that they would connect personally, considering they both share the same quiet kind of dedication to perfecting the math of their own visions.”
As a result of the bond made during this period, CR was invited by PUSH and Known Gallery to participate in this show, for which he has responded with a new body of work to be unveiled this month.

CR has worked as a studio assistant for Ryan McGinness, James Marshall (Dalek) and Eric Haze, during which time he spent years of drawing and mastering the abstract style that he works in today. Rauschenbach currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
