David Kramer
Satirical Text Based Conceptual Painting: "Log Entries..."

2018

$4,000

About

38"x27" signed by the artist, David Kramer. (acrylic, pencil on gessoed paper) In this conceptual work on paper, the text "Handmade Memes... Old World Flavor." is hand drawn to look like cut wood logs placed over a alternating vertical stripes of pastel blue, orange, yellow and green. The humorous and satirical aspect of this work is magnified with the title which reads: "Log Entires..." This piece is a featured work on paper, in a solo show of the artist's artwork: entitled: "Tired Jokes". A child of the 1970s, David Kramer pulls from that formative decade, re-crafting its lifestyle advertisements and distinctive interior design into paintings, drawings, and installations both nostalgic and ironic. His compositions resemble the advertisements that, as he claims (with the tongue-in-cheek humor that shapes his output), modeled his future: “I felt certain that my future would look a lot like what I was looking at in those ads. […] I am still hoping to grow up and get my hands on those things.” Text is central to Kramer’s work. He overlays what he calls “one-liners” onto his images, revealing the falsity of the idealized vision they present and the disillusionment of adulthood. Kramer's work has been the subject of national and international solo exhibitions including Galerie Laurent Godin in Paris, France; Aeroplastics Contemporary in Brussels, Belgium; Pierogi in Brooklyn, NY; Tom Jankar Gallery in Los Angeles, CA; Pollard + Mulherin Gallery in New York, NY; and Heiner Contemporary in Washington DC. He is the recipient of the New York Foundation for the Arts Grant Fellowship and The Pollock-Krasner Foundation Fellowship.
