New YorkGabriel J. Shuldiner: Translucent Saturation
Artist Reception. Wednesday 21 October, 4pm-7pm (virtual walkabout at 6pm)
David Richard Gallery presents Translucent Saturation, an exhibition of new and recent paintings by New York artist Gabriel J. Shuldiner in his second solo exhibition with the gallery.
The presentation surveys Shuldiner’s recent migration to creating his unconventional lush and gestural paintings—that read as much as wall sculptures and objects as they do paintings—on traditional canvas and paper supports. His earlier works were mostly created from found materials, mostly repurposed construction materials and debris that he found and thus limited to his daily finds. The forty works are mostly small to medium in size and intimate in scale with a few larger works that push the limits of his process. They wind their way up the gallery staircase and into the second-floor exhibition hall where they are hung by aesthetic and conceptual groupings in pairs and small series. While Shuldiner has historically worked with only the color black, several of these newest works sport small splashes of neon and bright colors that draw attention to important interior spaces and structural elements within the sculptural hybrid artworks that defy categorization and straddle objects and painting.
