Roland Gebhardt “Diverse Vocabularies”
David Richard Gallery
Jul. 14, 2023 - Aug. 6, 2021
David Richard Gallery is pleased to present Diverse Vocabularies by Roland Gebhardt in his second solo exhibition with the Gallery in New York. The common thread in this presentation is the artist’s ongoing systematic exploration of voids in various sculptural objects. The sculptures in this presentation are made of natural or painted wood and range from free-standing floor works to pedestal pieces and wall sculptures. There are 4 additional wall sculptures comprised of paper, cut voids and matte black paint all hung from wood cleats. The nuance, and first of two curatorial foci in the presentation, is how the voids are realized, either literally as a dimensional void (or cut) in the material of an object or, the shape of the void painted graphically in matte black paint on the surface of the object.
