David Richard Contemporary is pleased to present Southern California Painting\, 1970s: Painting Per Se\, t he first of four exhibitions the gallery will present over the next two yea rs that will take an in-depth look at various aspects of Southern Californi a painting during the 1970s— a period now being reassessed as an historical ly important time in California and the rest of the US. In Southern Califor nia\, the 1970s saw several tendencies emerge from the “Cool School\,” incl uding Pop\, hard-edge abstraction\, “Fetish Finish” craze and the “Light an d Space” movement\, all continuing from the ‘60s\, and a range of artmaking that included hyper-realism\, painterly figuration\, gestural abstraction\ , and “material” abstraction. There was tremendous experimentation with ind ustrial materials and manufacturing processes\, and an increasing desire to capture the open expanses and bright light of the California landscape. Al l these movements were unique to California\, only tangentially related to and distinctly different from the Lyrical Abstraction\, Minimalism\, Pop an d Op Art of New York.

This first exhibition\, Painting Per Se\, on view at David Richard Contemporary for the month of July\, will present paintings from 1970s Southern California that mostly utilize traditional supports\, such as canvas\, linen\, panel or paper and pigmente d media\, including oil\, acrylic or watercolor. A few works on alternative supports—acrylic\, vinyl—provide a sneak preview into subsequent exhibitio ns. Hard-edged\, geometric\, minimal and Light and Space painting will be r epresented by the artwork of Charles Arnoldi\, Billy Al Bengston< /b>\, Karl Benjamin\, Karen Carson\, Judy Chicago\, Ro n Davis\, Tony DeLap\, Helen Lundeberg\, Ed Moses\, Peter Plagens\, and Norman Zammitt. The work of Jerrold Burchman\, Marvin Harden and Matsumi Kanemitsu demonst rate the range of not only the gestural and painterly approaches to artmaki ng\, but also painting supports. Figuration was very much a part of the So Cal scene\, as represented by the paintings of Hans Burkhardt\, Char les Garabedian\, Scott Grieger\, Maxwell Hendler\, Yne z Johnston and Margaret Nielsen. A range of constructions tha t incorporate novel materials and media that allowed artists to explore pai nterly issues with a different approach is exemplified in the work of Merio n Estes\, Craig Kauffman and Tom Wudl\, which f oreshadows what we refer to as “material abstraction\,” also the subject of a subsequent exhibition.
