Jack Shainman Gallery is pleased to announce New Paintings, MMG artist Tim Bavington’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery. With this exhibition, Bavington continues to translate music into exuberant patterns and color fields that emote a vibrancy and electricity through the precisely painted synthetic polymer atop canvas. Each piece is an evocation of a song’s bridge, melody, a section of notes, systematically reinterpreted for the eye resulting in a vivid synesthesia of the senses.
Marking a new direction in Bavington’s oeuvre, Quadrophenia moves the more classical and strictly vertical and horizontal lines into an intense swirl of brilliant blues, magentas, greens and yellows. Bavington creates a visceral and emotional reverberation using The Who’s operatic album as a departure point and what results is an almost hypnotic optical experience that references the four-point structure of quadraphonic audio.
The exhibition opens Thursday, May 16th (6-8pm), and remains on view through June 29th, 2013.
