Jon Pestoni - Playing Games

Jon Pestoni paintings at David Kordansky Gallery are like a chess match with indecipherable rules. Each layer of the painting is a compositional strategy that is buried under the next. Looking becomes a struggle to define what I can't see, but I can't break away from them.
