“Raoul De Keyser: Freedom” Opens at David Zwirner

Standard

David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Raoul De Keyser, on view at the gallery’s 525 West 19th Street space. For nearly fifty years, De Keyser has created subtly evocative paintings and works on paper, which appears at once straightforward and cryptic, abstract and figurative. Composed of basic but indefinable shapes and marks, his works often invoke spatial and figural illusions, though they remain elusive of any descriptive narrative.

In this exhibition, De Keyser presents small-scale compositions that appear to be variations of an abstract idea. Certain forms reoccur across a number of works, such as a thick elongated line with a round head at its end, the porous outline of a circle, or a sketchy grid. Yet a serial logic remains difficult to pinpoint and the constancy of his works derives rather from the physical characteristics of the medium of painting itself, with the relationships between figure and ground, plane and depth, and form and gesture constituting the main components of the canvases.

Abraham Lubelski has been a professional artist for more than four decades and over the years has worked back and forth between painting, conceptual projects and installatons. In 1969 he completed a number of street works and performances in conjunction with the Architecture League of New York which were written up in Life and People magazines. In the 1970’s, among his other projects, he developed theater set designs. In the late 70’s and early 80’s Mr. Lubelski exhibited at the Neill Gallery in SoHo. Since the 1980’s Mr. Lubelski has exhibited internationally on a regular basis. He has exhibited in Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, and Hamburg, and, as well, in Poland, Japan, and various countries in South America. In conjunction with these exhibitions a number of catalogues have been produced and reviews have appeared in such international publications as Flash Art. Since 1990 Mr. Lubelski has managed several exhibition spaces on Broadway in SoHo in New York City. He has used the spaces to give exhibitions to underrepresented artists (from the U. S. and abroad) and has, in addition, sponsored the visits to the United States of numerous international artists. For several years Mr. Lubelski has been supporting and developing a traveling exhibition called Re: Duchamp which presents the work of 250 artists (the list is still in progress) and has already been viewed in New York City, Poland, Turkey, Italy (during the course of the Venice Biennale as part of the Biennale sponsored event Markers) and Israel.

Ivan de Monbrison, Supporter of NY Arts, Broadway Gallery, and World Art MEdia

For me, art is the only answer in our modern world to the question of death and the fragility of human nature. Through the ages, human beings have used the representation of the world as a medium to conjure what they saw as powerful elements of nature that they could not explain and which, would threaten them, it included spirits of the ancestors, forces of nature, death itself etc.
