Found Objects: Paintings by Rodger Bechtold and Chris Liberti

In Found Objects two artists create a dialog in paint as the gallery features the first-ever exhibition in Atlanta by one of the Midwest’s preeminent landscape painters, Rodger Bechtold, and the multi-faceted Charlotte-based landscape, still-life, and abstract painter Chris Liberti. Both artists are masters of paint and color. 
 
Bechtold is known throughout the Midwest and Northeast for his painterly interpretations of place and moment in landscapes of exuberant color. Based on direct observation, recollection, and invention, his paintings find the grandeur in the everyday. Liberti’s images, whether abstract or figurative, are the result of the artist’s “attempt to find solace in the simplest of things and to admire the world that’s before me.” Like Bechtold, Liberti is known for his strong use of color, and the artist is quick to say that his paintings are not merely of objects or landscapes, but represent his “past, present, and future, a reflection of the entirety within.”
