Art of the Month
Ozone Suite IV, 10" x 16", lithograph, 1993, David Row
David Row studied at Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut and is a representative of contemporary abstract art. He has taught at Princeton University in New Jersey since 2000. In his works tension is produced between geometric forms like rectangles, spirals, ellipses and their reciprocal overlapping. There are marked color contrasts and undulating lines that are often interrupted at the edge of the painting. Sweeping, spiraling stripes and lines move across the surface with geometrically mixed elements hovering in between creating new compositions of a lyrical geometry that have detached themselves from the weightiness of the massive blocks of forms.
