Jefferson, Lobdell, and Strong

David Richard Contemporary is pleased to present , an exhibition featuring the work of Jack Jefferson, Frank Lobdell and Charles Strong. Abstract Expressionism dominated Post-War American art and was explored in parallel on the two coasts—in New York with notable figures such as Pollock, DeKooning, Motherwell, and Newman, and in San Francisco with painters such as Diebenkorn, Francis, Bischoff, Dugmore, Smith, Jefferson and Lobdell. There were striking similarities in the work produced from... [more]

Matthew Penkala

      David Richard Contemporary is pleased to present Tower, Lobby, Floor, an exhibition of new paintings by Matthew Penkala. This new work is somewhere between photography and non-objective abstract painting. Penkala plays with light and glare, the familiar and abstract with hard-edges and diffuse borders using his masterful airbrush techniques, subtly blending colors and creating narrow spectra and an inescapable depth that provides an illusion of altered space and time -...

George Rush

        David Richard Contemporary is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by George Rush. A twelve-hour period from 5 am to 5 pm has been staged by Rush in a cycle of paintings showing the same view of a room with two chairs and a table set with various objects. Using a variety of sizes and focus, Rush has organized the paintings to reflect the passage of time in three ways. First, a shift in color from a soft blue grey to a deep orange signifies changing light.... [more]

Jean-Marie Haessle

      David Richard Contemporary is pleased to present an exhibition of new and recent paintings by Jean-Marie Haessle. These paintings represent a cohesive body of work by Haessle in which he explores the formal elements of color and line to create non-objective, gestural abstractions. The paintings evoke abstract expressionism with their richly textured surfaces and layers of marks made by countless linear brushstrokes and extruded paint, but take it to a different level with...

Luke Gray

      David Richard Contemporary is pleased to present Deep Skin & Strokeworld Paintings, a solo exhibition of new and recent paintings by Luke Gray. The work is fresh, spontaneous and almost automatic – the focus is on the brushstroke. Paint is applied quickly with a minimal, yet bold color pallet and broad strokes that flow rhythmically across the canvas. Gray’s work is mature, the marks and compositions are not over worked and convey an inner connection and harmony between... [more]

Solo Show

Bio-Dynamic, a solo exhibition of paintings by Chris Kahler, is potent and colorful; more cellular and molecular than astral. However, Kahler blurs the boundaries and moves between micro and macro, leaving the viewer wondering if this work is portraying the beginning or end with the themes of transformation, mutation and system conflict. The paintings are constructed of many layers: thick, gestural and three dimensional in some areas and translucent in others. Kahler carefully... [more]

Exploring Abstraction

      David Richard Contemporary is pleased to present an exhibition of paintings by Jay Davis, Peter Demos, Shirley Kaneda, Clarence Morgan, Matthew Penkala and Ben Weiner that explores abstraction through optical illusions. Three of the artists do so by exploiting photographic properties, while the other three focus on form and the illusions provided by color and surface texture. The works of Davis, Penkala and Weiner manipulate various aspects of photography to create unique... [more]
