Aaron Reichert began depicting historical and popular celebrity icons: Civil War generals, musicians, wrestlers, some Hollywood actors, mostly Americana- flavored, such as Johnny Cash and Clint Eastwood. Recognizable without being realistic, Reichert’s portraits are composed with dense internal reality, a decomposition that plays with concepts of masculinity, celebrity frailty, and the deterioration of American iconography. His images are stark, strictly monochromatic with pure blacks, pure whites, the grays residue of chance and wash. Reichert lives in New Orleans.
