In Riepenhoff's first ever solo 
show and first exhibition at Jackpot Gallery
a cache of paintings, drawings, sculptures, and a performance will pay
homage to work of others that have influenced this artist's understanding of
the art world through their activity in the Milwaukee art scene. Riepenhoff
embodies the ethos of other artist's practices in an attempt to acknowledge
their influence on him and to find his own meaning through a more close
understanding of others' work. Resembling a 
group show yet made by one
person, this exhibition is an investigation into originality in the creation
process and the influences of a community on art-making.

Riepenhoff is a 2009 winner of the Mary Nohl Fellowship for Individual
Artists and is in the 2010 Wisconsin Triennial. His work has been written
about in the New York Times and Art Forum and he has exhibited
internationally including projects in the Tate Modern and Frieze Art
Fair(London); Gavin Brown's Enterprise and the Swiss Institute (New York);

Kölnischer Kunstverein (Cologne), Karma International (Zurich), Fredric
Snitzer Gallery (Miami); The Suburban (Oak Park); Milwaukee Art Museum, Dean
Jensen Gallery, and Small Space (Milwaukee) among others. In July of 2010 he
will be attending Summer Studio Residency at the Sullivan Galleries in
