Mexico Workshop – Spots Left

October 20th, 2016


5 day workshop at Hacienda Mosaico. More info at Jan 29th - Feb 4th

this will be a special workshop focusing on large scale work. this is thanks to the expansive facilities at the hacienda. it will be the closest look you can expect to get at my process, ideas, techniques, and methods. with techniques that promote introspection, through random actions, methods and expressions. the perfect amount of time to take on a project of large scale and really get a feel and full experience of how to best engage in these techniques. there will also be plenty of time to step away or into the pool to get a fresh perspective on our work.

Everything – an all encompassing exhibition including paintings, photographs, drawings, short films, and musical compositions created by Jesse Reno a full time artist in Portland for the last 12 years. All new work from within 2016. this exhibit showcases the relationship of Reno’s ideas inspirations and feelings that run across his work in all his mediums. Jesse Reno says his work is “An abstraction of time in ancient faces, viewed over a sound scape of fairy tales playing on record players tuned to black and white tvs. constellations and rainbows drawn like maps to the subconscious” Reno has recently been focused on creating drawings with markers this has shifted his style into further abstraction using shapes to create space and suggestions of faces hidden in stained glass over a white backdrop. Long time admires of Reno’s work have compared his new style to famous artists such as Miro and Doppler Mobiles with a twist of graffiti and cubism
