When looking at Josh Podoll’s paintings they won’t give you anything to think about, and that is sort of the point. My eye gets caught in the air-brushed, optical illusion like, geometric patterns in a sort of empty, humming, awake way. Josh grew up in Fairfield Iowa – which is the former home of the Maharishi (of Beatles White Album fame) and one of the main centers for Transcendental Meditation in the US. He is in a show at Christopher Grimes Gallery in LA that opens January 16.
