David Kordansky Gallery is very pleased to announce its representation of Jon Pestoni
Frieze New York
May 4 – 7, 2012 at Booth C1
Frieze New York preview takes place May 3, 2012 for invited guests
David Kordansky Gallery is very pleased to announce its representation of Jon Pestoni, and its participation in Frieze New York with a solo presentation of his work. The presentation will include new paintings that exemplify a recognizable and idiosyncratic vocabulary predicated on the blurring of foreground and background, and the use of brushwork that often doubles as cancellation. In Pestoni’s work, a mark can unite aspects of a composition even as it contradicts them; many different layers of colors, marks, and intentions are combined into a singular, determined, and seductive dissonance. As a result, he is able to skillfully orchestrate what might otherwise be opposing or competing concerns into a simultaneously knowing and urgent practice of painting. In addition to the Frieze New York presentation, Pestoni’s first solo exhibition with the gallery will open in November, 2012.
