David Geiser: Oceanic

Thursday September 04
520 NW Davis St., 2nd floor
Painter David Geiser keeps a journal, and in his entries this past spring, he wrote that he’d become “fascinated by cut-off pieces cluttering the studio floor.” These castoffs from other paintings, he concluded, were “more effective than the work they sprang from.” So he decided to make new paintings out of rearranged scraps, in a vein similar to writer William S. Burroughs’ “cut-ups.” In Geiser’s work, contrary to the old adage, the sum of the parts is greater than the whole. His oil and encaustic (wax-based) compositions resplend with effects that evoke the seepage of volcanic magma and the growth of plants. Increasingly, his paintings also cross-pollinate with his drawings, which are often humorous and political. The commingling of figure and abstraction lends a new dimension to this thoughtful painter’s work. Sept. 4-27.
