folioeast is pleased to present an exhibit of ink paintings by the late David Slivka. Slivka (1914-2010) was one of the last remaining members of the first generation of American Abstract Expressionist artists. Known as both a painter and sculptor, he worked in a variety of mediums, from ink, crayon, and water color, to clay, granite, bronze, and wood. In the early 1960s, Slivka created a series of rapid ink paintings. In the 1970s, he continued to work in ink and made a series of large, organic, curvilinear abstract ink drawings.
This is the first show of Slivka’s paintings since his death in 2010 at the age of 95, and the first time this group of ink paintings—which show the progression and transition from free form abstractions to bold architectural, graphic statements—will be on exhibit. Gallery Hours: Saturday and Sunday, 12-5, or by appointment. For more information, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org; 917-592-8033
