Recent Works
Rick KLAUBER   
January 28 - Feb 27, 2010

   (Thursday)  28   January   -    (Saturday) 27   February 2010    


Reception  for   the  artist:  Thursday, 28 January, six to eight  p.m.

  

Howard Scott Gallery  is pleased to announce the opening exhibition of Recent Works by the New York City artist Rick  Klauber on Thursday, January 28.

  

Rick Klauber's recent  paintings on carpentry shims hover on the wall as lightly as birds on a wire.   They seem to breathe color.  Shims are shingles often used to level an  architectural frame.  Here they are exalted via the application of paint and the  metamorphic processes of the artist's mind.

    

Klauber uses the shims as  brushstrokes. The wall is the canvas. He paints each shim a single color and  then attaches it directly to the wall echoing the shingle's original purpose.  Like tesserae in a mosaic the individual shims coalesce into a painting.  

Acknowledging several  traditions, these paintings feel uniquely current. They emerge at once as  timeless and fresh. With the surface, gesture, color and placement of each shim,  Klauber pulls meaning out of the ether. These paintings radiate a kind of  hard-won serenity, a sense of rightness and natural  magic.

  

Rick Klauber, a native New  Yorker, began showing his work when Robert Motherwell sponsored his debut show  at Artists Space, NYC, in 1975. Other New York  shows include: Oscarrson Hood Gallery, White Columns, Threadwaxing Space and  Brenda  Taylor Gallery.   He was a founding member of the Long Point Gallery in Provincetown, MA, along with Robert Motherwell, Fritz  Bultman, and Judith Rothschild. Klauber has exhibited his work in  Germany, Hungary and in Vienna, Austria, at Hubert Winter Gallery.  His work has been reviewed in Artforum, Art in America and the  Brooklyn Rail. Klauber's work is included in numerous public and private  collections including Witherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC, Arkansas Arts  Center, Little Rock, AK, Reading Public Museum, Reading, PA, Ladenburg Thalmann,  NYC, and DeBevoise and Plimpton, NYC.
