David Park: A Retrospective is the first major museum exhibition in more than 30 years to present the powerfully expressive work of David Park (1911-1960), best known as the founder of Bay Area Figurative art. In the immediate postwar years, Park, like many avant-garde American artists, engaged with Abstract Expressionism and painted non-objectively. In a moment of passion, he made the radical decision to abandon nearly all of his abstract canvases at an East Bay dump.
“After a point, the twists come so steadily that I actually found myself holding my breath for long stretches - despite the fact that I know the original well - eager to see how key revelations would play out within this new dynamic.” Peter Debruge, Variety.
