Veils, Clouds and Stardust - A David R. prentice exhibit at GR gallery

GR Gallery hosts yet another spectacular contemporary art exhibit: One that hypnotizes and heals.

GR Gallery hosts yet another spectacular contemporary art exhibit: One that hypnotizes and heals. A re-visitation of work he created almost 50 years ago, 25 of David R. Prentice’s minimalist abstract paintings from the past 5 years attempt and succeed to elevate abstract-minimalist to a new avant-garde. Resembling his earlier works, from before he transitioned to landscape painting, the show exhibits Prentice’s confrontation with “unfinished business”. Relaxing colors, reminiscent of early spring or dreamlike environments evoke introspection. “Art heals people like music heals. When we’re sad or tired or lonely, we turn to music we like. Painting should nourish in the same way; it should make you feel better. It is an adjunct to healing. It helps you overcome trauma and sadness. It helps you lead a richer life, and that’s the job. That’s what an artist is supposed to do,” notes the artist. Subtle palettes hereby mesmerize viewers, inspire reflection and soothe.
