David Kordansky Gallery premieres three new exhibitions. “Skunk Grove” debuts its first exhibition of new paintings by Lucy Bull, Recent Sculpture by Fred Eversley, along with “Tom of Finland: Pen and Ink 1965 – 1989.”
Lucy Bull’s paintings are visceral works that appeal directly to the senses. Synesthetic fields of shape and color, her paintings are described in sonic, tactile, or even emotional terms that evade rational logic and are unique to each viewer.
“Recent Sculpture” is an exhibition of new work by Fred Eversley. A key member of the group of artists associated with West Coast Light and Space, Fred Eversley spent his formative years as an engineer in the aerospace industry before developing a series of processes and specialized tools that enabled him to produce the first of his iconic Parabolic Lens sculptures in the late 1960s. The lenses, which Eversley continues to refine and elaborate today, constitute a sustained body of research and investigation that has few equals in the postwar era.
“Tom of Finland: Pen and Ink 1965 – 1989” features the finished and preparatory drawings of the artist. The exhibition includes a range of media, including pencil, pen, ink, marker, and gouache. Together, these pictures demonstrate the breadth of graphic production key to Tom of Finland’s creative output throughout his lifetime. The exhibit is curated in close collaboration with Tom of Finland Foundation.
