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.  His works were featured in the 2015 HGTV Smart Home & have appeared in multiple galleries, print publications, television, & film.
