Marking the artist's second solo exhibition with the gallery, Douglass Freed presents an exhibition of recent paintings titled "Small Reflections."
Press Release (PDF)
The landscapes of Douglass Freed can seldom be contained to one canvas. His minimalistic and almost ambiguous images of horizons, clouds, and bodies of water pour onto adjoining spaces where their forms shift in color and light as if they have transformed into entirely different pieces, but they remain undeniably suited to one another. While his pieces vary from quiet, monochromatic works to fully orchestrated chromatic ones, in either sense, he creates places that simultaneously imply reality and a dreamlike, even spiritual, serenity. He captures and holds onto the viewers gaze, creating an experience that few can. Through his harmonious use of blended color, texture, and structure, Freed finds the grey area between traditional landscape painting and its abstraction into color fields.
Douglass Freed lives and works in Missouri. He received his BFA and MFA from Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas and is a nationally exhibiting artist with over fifty solo exhibitions. He has had work published in over sixty reviews and publications including The New York Times, The New York Art Review, The New Art Examiner, Art in America, Arts Magazine, Kansas City Review, Kansas City Star, The St. Louis Tribune, and New American Paintings.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Bruno David Gallery Publications will publish a catalogue of the artists work with an exhibition history and bibliography.
