RIME “DANGER ZONE” at GALERIE WALLWORKS in Paris, France opening April 2, 2015

April 02 2015 . 01:12am

“After a two month long residency in Paris, France, I am please to present my second solo show at Galerie Wallworks. Showing over 20 new paintings created in Paris and New York City. Opening reception – Thursday April 2nd, 7-10 pm.

My thought process while creating work for this show –
What a pain in the ass it is to tell the truth. To do what you want while embracing actions in an unapologetic way. At times you question what is off the cuff, and what was meticulously plotted long before you said it. Genuine connection to universal meaning. Honesty. To somehow dazzle and offend all at the same time, as a junky for odd circumstance. You want to believe you’re always on. That you’re this cache of engaging life experience, that is so abundant, so graceful as it’s spilled all over others. Dilemma. Infectious questions are the answer… Running as fast as you can from that fine line between corny and cool. Seasoned storyteller with a dysfunctional sense of humor. 90% proof. You want to believe that you have it all figured out under the flag of always being in the process of figuring it out. Fighting the guilt of sleeping past noon. Commitment to the line. Expecting more than the line of “I like the colors though”.”

Rime’s “Dangerous Joseph Shit” Limited Edition Zine + “Moving Into Now”

December 23 2013 . 11:45pm

Limited Edition Prints Drop Today at 3pm, Exclusively at 1xRUN Monday 12/23 at 3pm EST / 12pm PST



“My approach on paper is often similar to outdoor pieces: loose, aggressive, and executed with little planning in terms of the end result. I avoid using pencil and go into a white page with light but hold marker strokes or curves, progressively working darker as the piece takes shape. Every stroke is influenced by the tone and energy of the one before it. From an abstract composition as a starting point, I tend to go in with layers of repetitive figurative imagery that go with the flow that is already laid out on the page. The freestyled characters should seem in motion, up to shit in some sort of fashion, often side profile. Text helps to set the mood. I know the work is done with there is enough narrative to tell many layered intersecting stories.” – Rime

1xRUN Thru Interview
Moving Into Now & Dangerous Joseph Shit by Rime

1xRun: Tell us a little bit about the execution “Moving Into Now”, when was this piece created and with what materials?
Rime: “Moving Into Now” was created over a few sessions over a week and a half period back in the summer of 2013 with markers and shit. I worked on it while in New York City and Los Angeles. The original is the same size as the prints here, 18”x24” inches. There is no definite game plan with these type of works. I draw when in the mood and build on whatever is already on the page.

1xRun: What is unique about this piece compared to your other work?
Rime: This piece has elements inspired by my move back to New York City earlier this year. After 8 years out west it’s nice to be back home.

1xRun: Let’s talk about “Dangerous Joseph Shit” a 60-page limited edition zine that catalogs some of your recent work, tell us about the theme and what people can expect in this zine.
Rime: “Dangerous Joseph Shit” is a compilation of some recent work from the past two years. The aim with the layout is to show the influence graffiti has on my paper work and vice versa.


1xRun: The idea for “Dangerous Joseph Shit” began as a follow up to your Arrest Sheet portfolios, tell us a bit about why you feel that zines and zine culture are so important to graffiti culture?
Rime: I think zines are a good way to display a portion of work or theme in a non formal way. Growing up in graffiti, collecting magazines and books was always a big deal. With the internet taking over of the documentation of graffiti it seems rare to see graffiti in print and not on a screen.


1xRun: Why were zines so impactful on you both growing up and recently?
Rime: I’m down with shit I can look at and hold in my hands.


1xRun: Why should people buy pick up this print and zine pack?
Rime: It will solve all their problems in life.

1xRun: Describe this print and zine in one gut reaction word.
Rime: Snafu.


1xRun: Where else can people find you?

Back at it for December, 2012’s Art Basel, Rime and The Seventh Letter teamed up with Klughaus Gallery and Live From The Streets to bring an out of the box experience to Miami. With rented UHaul trucks to be painted, mobile music performances, and a cache of alcohol, weed, and mushrooms on deck, Rime and crew were able to keep the party going through out the week. Long nights of painting, partying, disappearing people and vehicles, and outwitting cock blocking cops made for hard to forget adventure.

See the Live from the Streets episode (featuring Rime, Wen & others) made from sounds collected
from this Art Basel trip here:
