Reed Danziger : New Work
May 9 – Jun 13, 2009
Robischon Gallery presents paintings from California artist Reed Danziger featuring new works on paper from the artist's "Indeterminate Order" and "Sequence" series. Presenting paintings on panel and paper, including large-scale diptych and triptych works, Danziger creates complex and complicated systems with layers of drawing, silkscreen with powdered graphite and precise watercolor washes. Each subsequent layer informs the next with a resulting organic form which is pushed and pulled, multiplied and expanded, emerging into a vast interlacing of bold and delicate lines, geometric clusters and pinpricks of pigment. Random drips from the original form venture into the white expanse of the paper to colonize nascent bubbling forms that burst with suggested potential. Each painting becomes its own specifically- ordered cosmological system that, as the artist states, "is the collision of human orchestrated design and the elemental, atmospheric and natural world." Meticulous and labor-intensive, Danziger's paintings exude a sense of overall rhythm that implies interconnectedness and perpetual reinvention.
