Foltz Fine Art presents Jon Flaming: "Modern Cowboy" Artist Reception
Foltz Fine Art presents "Jon Flaming: Modern Cowboy," featuring contemporary, western-inspired works by the Dallas artist. In "Modern Cowboy," an important American icon is reimagined through a combined process of digital design and oil paint.
A working process that evokes Henri Matisse’s cut-outs and David Hockney’s digital drawings. Flaming has embarked on an ambitious subject: the American cowboy, an icon that combines myth, legend, reality, and childhood play. Through simplification of the forms the Cowboys become iconic characters who wrestle with livestock, land, and elements. They drip sweat from the noonday heat and keep watch at night by light of the crackling campfire. The canvases incorporate Texas cultural markers like rattlesnakes, grackles and prickly pear cacti to help shape the visual landscape. The works create an active narrative of the "Modern Cowboy."
The exhibit will be on display through March 21.
