About

David Shapiro’s minimalist works are meditative and quiet. This two toned beige piece has a reductive Zen quality. Shapiro was born in Brooklyn in 1944 and passed away in 2014. He did his undergraduate work Pratt University and received an MFA from Indiana University. Shapiro always worked in series and his works were greatly influenced by Asian culture. He was a deep thinker and serious painter. His work is comprised of a highly personal language of signs and symbols. Circles, spirals, dots, wave and knot patterns textures resonate on richly hued, tactile surfaces of Nepalese and Japanese papers, burlap and canvas. evoking a subtle mood of contemplation. Suggesting constellations of heavenly bodies, or human thoughts, these works appear to visually and psychologically, if not mythically, intersect, overlap, and merge with one another. For over three decades, David Shapiro had over eighty solo exhibitions throughout the United States as well as in Japan, Canada, and England. His work is represented in many public, private, and corporate collections including respected institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Solomon Guggenheim Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Mint Museum in Charlotte, North Carolina, the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, Washington D.C., the Aichi Prefectural Museum of Art in Nagoya, Japan, and the Kunsthalle der Stadt in Nuremberg, Germany. The medium of this work is collagraph and relief on handmade paper.
