September 10 – October 10, 2015

Press Release

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – AMERINGER | McENERY | YOHE is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings by Todd Hebert. The exhibition will open on 10 September 2015 and will remain on view through 10 October 2015. A public reception for the artist will be held on 10 September from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Todd Hebert employs both paintbrush and airbrush to develop his positively graphic and atmospheric compositions. The way in which he meshes optical movement with static depiction creates something realistic yet mysterious.

Analogous to traditional still life painting, Hebert’s work has the potential to instill contrasting emotions through the balance of intimacy and remoteness. His play with focus and his manipulation of scale in rendering recognizable objects produces images that are striking, eccentric, and sometimes humorous.

TODD HEBERT was born in Valley City, North Dakota in 1972. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1996 from the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks and his Master of Fine Arts degree in 1998 from the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence.
