Milan’s Galleria Patricia Armocida recently opened “A Position on a Map,” a new solo exhibition by Jim Houser (previously featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 17). A collection of new paintings and two site-specific installations, “A Position on a Map” gets its title from Houser’s view of his work. The pieces in the show work together to map out his experiences and interactions, according to the artist, depicting anything from mundane objects to influential books and people in Houser’s signature, minimalist style. Houser approaches his cool-toned paintings with an illustrative, design-oriented aesthetic, but elements of folk art manifest in his assemblage-like compositions. “A Position on a Map” is on view through April 18. Take a look at some works from the show below.
