Rudi Broschofsky

Situated somewhere in between representation and abstraction sit the mesmerizing works of artist Rudi Broschofsky. Often mistaken for screen-prints, his paintings are constructed entirely out of spray-paint. Generally, this is accomplished through a painstaking process of creating meticulous stencils with an X-Acto knife. A typical stencil may take upwards of 40 hours to create and sometimes may only be used once. From nearby the subject matter is nonrepresentational but with space the composition becomes unmistakable. While these paintings are characteristically exploding with color, the subject matter is neutral bold and powerful.
Rudi was raised in a gallery setting with his parents opening a western art gallery when he was 5. Growing up surrounded by a variety of western masters ranging from Edward Curtis’s iconic turn of the century photographs all the way to Andy Warhol’s Cowboys and Indians pop art had a large impact on the subject matter that he chooses to focus on.
