Installation views from David Bates: Coastal Paintings, May 2015 Exhibition at Arthur Roger Gallery
Installation views of Amer Kobaslija – April 2015 exhibition at Arthur Roger@434.
Coastal Paintings is David Bates’ eighth exhibition with the gallery and consists of small- to large-scale oil paintings on canvas and panel. Employing his distinctive bold style, Bates continues to document the people and landscapes of the Gulf Coast. His portraits of fishermen and coast natives avow his esteem for his subjects and their absolute fortitude. Like them, his striking landscapes evoke a quiet solitude, yet often with hints of recovery from or preparation for more ominous times. Equally resilient and captivating are the Magnolias and other flora realized by his characteristic and masterful thick, lush strokes.
This is Amer Kobaslija’s first exhibition with the gallery. Featured are small- to large-scale painted representations of artist studios on Plexiglas and wooden panels. Among them include his own studio, those of friends, as well as those of famous artists Balthus and Jackson Pollock.
