David Shapiro: Solo Exhibition

November 5 - 24, 2009

This exhibition of paintings and works on paper showcases Shapiro’s distinct style of abstraction, borne from a desire to convey spiritualism through paint.  The flowing, gentle imagery comes from a dialogue with the natural world and pulsates with light. The surfaces are complex and textured – from polished to earthen – and contain centrifugal images which resemble quasars or irises as well as knotted, curvilinear lines. His division of the picture plane into sections further increases the dynamic tension between organic and geometric forms.


David Shapiro lives in New York City. His works are included in numerous private and public collections including the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
