Los Angeles-based artist Josh Dov opens his first San Francisco exhibition, sponsored by Brian Gross Fine Art, in the lobby gallery at One Post Street on January 12, 2004. This solo exhibition will introduce the work of this talented painter to the San Francisco audience with a series of new abstract paintings and works on paper.
Through his intuitive layering of grids, Josh Dov creates precisely rendered compositions in muted shades of gray and black with hints of subtle color. Ranging in size from twenty-four to ninety-six inches in width, the works are comprised of a matrix of horizontal and vertical lines that crisscross the surface. Intricate and nuanced, the densely worked surfaces have a depth and a complexity that belie the simplicity of their basic structures. Through his meticulous consideration of line, Dov builds dynamic works whose linear patterns seem to undulate, activating the surfaces with rhythmic motion.
Josh Dov, born in Los Angeles, California, in 1971, received his MA from the University of New Mexico at Albuquerque in 1997, his BA from the University of California at Santa Cruz in 1993, and was the recipient of the Irwin Fellowship in Painting in 1993. His work has been exhibited in Albuquerque and Los Angeles, most recently at Mark Moore Gallery in Santa Monica, California. He lives and works in Los Angeles. This is his first show with Brian Gross Fine Art.
Exhibitions curated by Brian Gross Fine Art at One Post Street are a cooperative venture between Brian Gross and Crocker Plaza. Prior exhibitions have included solo shows by the painters Patrick Wilson, Gary Lang, Ed Moses, Sono Osato, Peter Alexander, Charles Linder, and Donald Feasél.
