About the work

David Row’s gestural oil paintings feature rhythmic, flowing lines interrupted by periodic fractures and breaks. These ruptures have been a preeminent interest of Row’s since studying with Al Held in the 1980s. “For some time my work has involved the tension between fragments and wholes . . . it seems to reflect the disparity between what we desire (wholeness) and what we experience (fragment),” Row has said. His focus on fragmentation is also evident in his shaped canvas pieces, which he began creating in the early 1990s and returned to in 2011.
