White Columns presents a solo exhibition by David Byrd (1926-2013.) The first solo exhibition of Byrd’s work in New York City. The exhibition is in collaboration with the Estate of David Byrd.
The artist’s work was recently exhibited at Fleisher Ollman Gallery, Philadelphia; and his work was recently on view in Paris alongside Lewis Hammond, Pierre Klossowski and Paulina Olowska. Anton Kern Gallery, New York will stage a second exhibition of Byrd’s work, dedicated to his landscape paintings, that will open on 7 February, 2019.
In 2012 Bryd Stated: “For 70 years my life has mostly been bad jobs, like most everybody else, and occasionally drawing and painting, except now, being retired and having built my house to paint in, I am free. I have found that bad jobs can produce very good pictures. Don’t know what good jobs produce.”
