La Tilton Gallery en Nueva York presentará la primera exposición individual de David Lynch, de 6 de marzo hasta el 14 de abril 2012.

Un icono entre los cineastas norteamericanos, David Lynch está igualmente comprometido como artista visual. Comenzó su carrera como pintor, … y comenzó a hacer cortometrajes mientras asistía a la Academia de Bellas Artes de Pensilvania en Filadelfia, para encontrar una manera de hacer mover sus pinturas.

Lynch trabaja con diferentes medios para crear pinturas, esculturas, obras sobre papel y fotografías. Sus pinturas recientes combinan figuras primitivamente dibujadas y texto con áreas de textura gruesa de pintura y, a menudo, con bombillas de colores insertadas. Enmarcados en gruesos marcos dorados bajo un cristal (inspirado en cuadros de Francis Bacon), se convierten en forma de caja, los objetos en sí mismos.

Temas narrativos presentan la fantasía de marca 'Lynch', ingenio y humor, junto con su afición reconocible por lo ambiguo, pero, precisamente representado, un momento congelado que revela una emoción instintiva, humana, y a menudo violenta o trágica, casi tocando el absurdo.

The Tilton Gallery in New York will be showcasing David Lynch's first solo exhibition, from March 6th until April 14th, 2012.

An icon among American filmmakers, David Lynch is equally committed as a visual artist. He began his career as a painter and started making short films while he attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, to find a way to make his paintings move.

Lynch works with many different media to create paintings, sculpture, works on paper and photographs. Recent paintings combine primitively drawn figures and text with thick textured areas of paint and, often, inserted lit colored light bulbs. Framed in thick gold frames under glass (inspired by Francis Bacon’s frames), they become box-like, objects in their own right.

Narrative subjects exhibit Lynch’s trademark whimsy, wit and humor along with his recognizable penchant for the ambiguous, yet precisely depicted, frozen moment that unveils an instinctual, often violent or tragic human emotion, almost verging on the absurd.
