27 Jan — 3 Mar 2018 at the David Richard Gallery in New York, United States
David Richard Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming presentation, Abiquiú Paintings by Shane Tolbert at the Gallery’s newest venue in Harlem. This is Tolbert’s debut exhibition with the Gallery and his first presentation in New York. 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.
