David R. Prentice : Veils, Clouds and Stardust

(NEW YORK, 9/1/16) – GR gallery is proud to announce a solo exhibition of the American artist David R. Prentice, featuring 25 of his Minimalist abstract paintings from the past 5 years. On view will be paintings from his “Veils”, “Clouds”, and “Stardust” series with one painting from his earliest Minimalist career in the 60s. In addition to this, Prentice will be unveiling his latest series “Out Of The Blue,” inspired by his late wife. This exhibition focuses on the artist’s expert and subtle use of color in his paintings. Beginning in the late 50s, David R. Prentice started out his career with abstract Minimalist paintings that “operated on the edge of perception. The “White Series” from the 60s were his first artistic output at the time. Switching gears, the artist dove into realistic landscape paintings in the 80s. After a long and successful career with landscapes, he has revisited the Minimalist ideas with the colorful yet subtly moving pieces on view at GR gallery. These most recent works of his draw the viewer in to contemplate how the colors move and blend seamlessly creating a dreamlike composition. The use of fundamental colors pushed down to their palest tone makes the paintings appear to change hues in different lights, making Prentice’s paintings feel mysterious and iridescent. David R. Prentice’s return to abstract Minimalism offers a meditative experience with his engaging manifestation of veils, clouds and stardust.
