David Richard Gallery is pleased to present Optic Drive, an exhibition of paintings by Gabriele Evertz and the gallery’s first solo exhibition for the New York-based artist. 

The paintings of Gabriele Evertz are comprised of precise stripes and subtle diagonal lines of color, in varying combinations from fully saturated to a range of values, organized in spatial relationships and patterns that explore the sensations and phenomenological aspects of color. As an abstract painter, her process minimizes strong figure-ground relationships and complex compositions so that the viewer can focus purely on the color and its impact on their perceptions and interpretations, triggering their own memories, emotions and feelings. This exhibition focuses on a new body of work, The Black Room, produced in 2012, in which Evertz explores a greater use of gray—a wide range of mixtures of black and white—that predominates the canvases and prefigures something serene and contemplative, which is indeed the experience one feels when viewing the large—60 x 60 inch square—paintings of the rhythmically patterned and angled values of gray regularly interrupted by only thin columns of saturated hues. The grays are luminous and provide a sensuous and seductive quality to these large paintings. The exhibition also features a selection of recent paintings from earlier series that are comprised largely of the hues of the color spectrum.
