DC Moore Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Mark Innerst, on view from May 3 through June 8, 2012. A catalogue with an essay by David Coggins will be available.
In his most recent work, Innerst displays his mastery of painted forms, traversing the urban and natural world, the abstract and the real. Innerst’s fascination with the ways in which external reality is perceived “as something whole, rather than an accumulation of parts that all fit together” permeates this series. Through it, he explores an almost surreal interrelation between geometric forms and natural occurrences. The work is characterized by a clearly established formal structure and a unique luminism. A sense of innate light radiates from within each panel and in each painting, enhancing Innerst’s transfixing mix of content, form, paint and surface.
