Gabe Langholtz is a Naïve Modernist & Geometric Abstract painter from Austin, TX. His work, although primarily representational, is indebted to American Color Field painting, focusing on color relations, pattern making, form & line. In the tradition of folk art, Langholtz routinely employs the use of mundane cultural objects and/or activities to establish a contemporary narrative, oftentimes drawing on humor, parody and pastiche as tools for social commentary.
