Current Exhibitions

Bruno David Gallery is pleased to present Alex Couwenberg’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, opening Friday, April 5, 2013. The exhibition titled “Swell” will be on view April 5–May 4, 2013.
A catalogue, Alex Couwenberg: Swell, will be published on the occasion of the exhibition.

Los Angeles based painter Alex Couwenberg’s new paintings explore “process” and the “moment” through tightly controlled compositions of paint and mark making. Born and raised in Southern California, Couwenberg creates images that are inspired by the elements indigenous to his surroundings. The work references and suggests the aesthetic associated with mid-century modernism, car culture, skateboards, and surfing. Not to leave out, paying homage to the historical styles of post-war art making associated with Los Angeles and Southern California throughout the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s.

Couwenberg’s paintings give a nod towards the Hard-edge abstractionists, the finish fetish, and the light and space artists. Not content to replicate, he uses the sensibility of Eames-era design and hard-edge geometric abstraction as points... [ Read all ]


Forthcoming Exhibitions

Bruno David Gallery is pleased to present Yvette Drury Dubinsky’s third solo exhibition with the gallery, opening Friday, May 10, 2013. The exhibition titled “There and Gone” is inspired by Dubinsky’s intense reaction to the violence and destruction currently happening in Syria and in the Middle East and, presented as a mixed media installation with a group of related smaller works. The exhibition will be on view May 10–June 15, 2013. A catalogue, Yvette Drury Dubinsky: There and Gone, will be published on the occasion of the exhibition.

Dubinsky traveled in Lebanon and Syria in late 2009, exploring astonishing archeological treasures and monuments and befriending two Syrian families. Since then, the historic sites she visited have gone under siege and some have been destroyed. Caught in the crossfire of Syria's war, one family was forced from their Damascus home and is now living as refugees in a mountain village. The other family, from Aleppo, fled to Turkey. Without income, the two families face a dramatic change from the middle class lifestyle they led when Dubinsky met them.

THERE AND GONE deals with bearing wit... [ Read all ]


Previous Exhibitions

Bruno David Gallery is pleased to present Richard Hull’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, on view March 1-30, 2013, with an opening reception on Friday, March 1, 2013. A catalogue, RICHARD HULL: RECENT PAINTINGS, with new essay by Nicole Yen, will be published on the occasion of the exhibition.

Richard Hull’s paintings fill their canvases with large swathes of color; blocks of opaque hues are overlaid with sweeping brushstrokes clustered together that function like ripples on the water—but far less transient. Rings within a tree may more appropriate, as the description evokes the same feelings of growth that Hull’s painterly gestures achieve. The comparison of grooves on a record player describes some of the patterns, but neither the liveliness of the purposeful irregularities within Hull’s stroke widths nor the texture of thick paint upon the canvas.

Although Hull’s paintings are not traditional portraits, each artwork has a distinct feeling of character. Hull applies a layer of melted beeswax to his canvas before painting, making the rich colors found in his work possible. Then, he paints shapes of hot and... [ Read all ]
