David Richard Gallery will present Richard Anuszkiewicz, Variations: Evolution of the Artist’s Media 1986-2012, the gallery’s first solo exhibition for the artist that will feature three-dimensional artwork, including wall reliefs and pedestal sculptures. The exhibition will be presented from May 10-June 15, 2013 at the gallery.
Opening Reception: Friday, May 17, 5-7pm
Featuring sculptural works accompanied by drawings and paintings, the exhibition maps the evolution of Richard Anuszkiewicz’s art from 1986 through 2012 as he moves out of the purely two-dimensional plane and explores visual perception and three-dimensional space with the greatest economy of means. Using only thin strips of wood or metal that are painted with two or three carefully selected hues, he creates reductive structures that take advantage of a well known phenomenon in which the viewer’s mind completes the minimal constructs, envisioning a whole from the fragments by filling in the suggested flat surfaces or layers of overlapping planes. These structures are not only more architectural, but much simpler than his paintings, relying less on painting methods to create optical illusions and more on a literal approach aided by pure color.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday through Saturday, 10am-5pm
