About

In this paintings gesture plays against structure, density against sparsity, and movement against stasis. Letter forms weave, pool, and puddle in and out of existence, or jostle against borders and boundaries. The images may reference illuminated manuscripts, calligraphy, typography, textile design, and Middle English poetry. The impulsive drawing in the works suggests a range of emotions from somber gloominess to airy delicacy. Douglas Florian lives and works in New York. His previous exhibitions have been reviewed in Art in America, The New Yorker, and The New York Times, where Roberta Smith called his work "Visually scrumptious," and "unleashed to joyful, freewheeling effect."
