New Sculpture and Drawings
Feb 2 - Feb 28, 1990
During February the Frumkin/Adams Gallery will show a group of new works by Roy DeForest. The exhibition, his first in New York since 1985, features three-dimensional work as well as a group of new drawings in the artist's own frames.
The two sculptures in the show are large polychromed wood figures that come right out of the artist's paintings. El Hombre Grande features a fantastically painted Indian with a headdress of Fuller Brushes. And the most recent sculpture consists of a figure covered with children's marbles standing in a painted fantasy forest. There is also a large characteristic painting supported on either side by carved wooden figures, the ensemble overlooked by a carved wooden moon. In addition there is a polychrome relief and the latest of the artist's series of Dog Tables. The drawings in this exhibition are all pastels that feature some of the artist's most elaborate frames to date.
The Roy DeForest exhibition will open on February 2nd and run through the month. The Frumkin/Adams Gallery is open from 10 to 6, Tuesday through Friday, and from 10 to 5:30 on Saturdays.
