Skarstedt is pleased to announce David Salle's solo exhibition Debris opening on April 9th at the Dallas Contemporary.
One of the most important figurative artists of the past several decades, David Salle’s exhibition Debrisexplores various modes of confrontation, juxtaposition, and visual simultaneity. The exhibition is comprised of nearly 35 works, including a new ceramic series, which will be displayed alongside a selection of paintings in the diptych format, wherein a representational portrait is contrasted with abstract space. While Salle has made ceramics on and off over the years, often including ceramic fragments in his paintings, this will be the first time that he has exhibited his ceramics as singular works. In Debris, liberated from confines of unique painting, these smashed and collapsed vessel-shapes assume a life of their own, allowing the exploration of visual simultaneity and juxtaposition to extend beyond the context of the canvas.
The exhibition is curated by Peter Doroshenko, executive director of Dallas Contemporary.
