Exhibition Opening: David Urban, The Eye as Dove, 2012
David Urban has come to represent the most ardent champion of painting, especially in the expression of “abstract” art. His paintings are defined by bold collisions of line and shape, clashing tones and kinetic brushstrokes. Urban builds his dynamic paintings layer upon layer into a strange borderland between abstraction and representation. Rhythmic geometries conjure up networks of boards, beams and girders. These improvisations incorporate the traditions of still life and landscape reminiscent of work by Philip Guston. Urban produces forms that confound in their perception, and pursues an endless investigation into how and why we see.
The Eye as Dove will be on view at Corkin Gallery from September 13 - October 28, 2012. The artist will be present for the opening reception Thursday, September 13 from 5 - 8pm.
