You know that bit in Ferris Bueller when there’s the parade and everyone’s jumping around grinning and kissing each other in a rainstorm of streamers and ticker tape? Well, that’s the vibe in It’s Nice That HQ when new Andy Rementer work is announced. Even though we are devout fans of Rementer’s notorious Techno Tuesday, to see him branch out into a new style is something we are willing to fully get to grips with and enjoy as soon as is physically possible.
In this show on display at New York’s Mondo Cane gallery, Andy explores romance, nightlife and the hustle and bustle of the city in this homage to the Big Apple. His knack for making every character look like someone you want to be friends with still rings true despite his slight change of medium, and his new-found love for fluoro paint is the perfect accompaniment to his subject choice of odd characters and unlikely couples you tend to find in big cities.
