David Richard Contemporary is pleased to present Line, Curve, Form, an exhibition of paintings and wall sculptures by Simon Aldridge, Alex Couwenberg, Mark Emerson, Julie Karabenick, Scott Malbaurn and Richard Roth. These artists create optically active abstractions in two and three-dimensions through the use of lines, curves and forms juxtaposed with color combinations that vibrate.


Aldridge generates illusionary effects with three-dimensional wall sculptures that range from modernistic undulations to minimalistic boxes of wood and glass in which orbs of a single color seem to float. Couwenberg plays with familiar curvilinear shapes, color and texture to create deeply layered forms often asymmetrically situated in an expanse of negative space. Emerson’s paintings create powerful vibrations by combining strategically situated colors in layered geometric patterns that jump out of their two-dimensional plane. Karabenick produces paintings based on the square with crisp edges, pristine surfaces and color combinations that create a pulsing sensation. Malbaurn employs a hard-edge style of painting with reductive compositions that create very minimalistic paintings that are more like objects. Continuing in the vein of creating objects and wall sculptures, Roth paints perfectly flat, hard-edge compositions on hand-made wooden boxes that deceive the viewer and beg to be viewed from various angles to confirm the optical effects.
