SHANE TOLBERT: ABIQUIÚ PAINTINGS
January 27 - March 3, 2018
DAVID RICHARD GALLERY, LLC
211 EAST 121ST STREET, NEW YORK, NY 10035

For any of our readers that may be in New York, Abiquiu local Shane Tolbert is having a show at the David Richard Gallery.

David Richard Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming presentation, Abiquiú Paintings by Shane Tolbert at the Gallery’s newest venue in Harlem, located at 211 East 121st Street, New York, NY 10035, P: (212) 882-1705. This is Tolbert’s debut exhibition with the Gallery and his first presentation in New York. There will be an opening reception with the artist on Saturday, January 27, 2018 from 4:00 to 8:00 PM and the exhibition will remain on view through March 3, 2018. A digital catalogue will be available online.

The spectacular and rugged landscape of Northern New Mexico, like for so many artists, informs the abstract paintings of Shane Tolbert. The big sky, bright clear days and miles of uninterrupted vistas create an inspiring environment that lends itself to a unique visual language. Tolbert, influenced by Color Field painting, brings color and a novel process approach to combining color with the extreme visuals and surface textures of his environment. Process and routine are a key part of Tolbert’s creative approach. Not only do mishaps and accidents in his rigorous process produce surprises, but create new avenues to pursue. The old routine is broken and a new series of repetition and process begins anew. In the artist’s words, he “prefer the act of painting to be flexible, but the end result to be reflexive.” Thus, coming full circle in this new series, Abiquiú Paintings, his work captures his surroundings by design with the rich history of centuries of the landscape shifting and eroding, the seasonal cycle of rain, growth, decay and renewal overlaid with the daily cycle of the sun setting and moon rising and the footprints of centuries of culture and heritage. “In the studio beauty, erosion, inversion and prehistory inform” his image making. The artist’s unique process of painting with dilute acrylic paint on sheets of plastic that are dried, peeled and adhered to wet paint on a canvas support, provides both the pigment and element of chance and surprise in his paintings.
