Mark Dagley “Neo-Op” opening reception at David Richard Gallery

Hosted by David Richard Gallery

Sunday, March 3, 2019 at 3 PM – 7 PM

David Richard Gallery 211 E 121st St, New York, New York 10035

David Richard Gallery is pleased to present Neo-Op, an exhibition by Mark Dagley featuring a comprehensive body of work begun in 1994, with several new canvases finished as recently as February of 2019. This work emerged out of Dagley’s systematic approach to structure using a specific set of material constraints and limitations on color. The results include multiple series in two and three dimensions: paintings, sculpture and works on paper using simple motifs of geometric progression, linear interplay, concentric organic forms and chain-linked lozenges.

The presentation will be on view from March 3 through 31, 2019 with an opening reception Sunday, March 3 from 3:00 to 7:00 PM

Mark Dagley (b. 1957, Washington D.C.) is a visual artist who studied painting and sculpture at the Corcoran School of Art, and painting, video and electronic music at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. He currently studies classical guitar privately and Music Theory in the evening division at The Juilliard School.
Dagley has exhibited his work internationally for the past three decades, including in North America, Europe, and Australasia. During the 1980s, he was active in the East Village abstract painting scene and showed alongside other pioneering abstract painters, including Barry X Ball, Max Gimblett, Olivier Mosset, James Nares, Stephen Parrino, Li Trincere, and Alan Uglow, among many others. His first solo exhibition took place in 1987, at the Tony Shafrazi Gallery, New York City.

In 1993 Dagley had his first Museum exhibition at the Kunstverein St. Gallen, Switzerland. In the same year, he received his first major commission from Hoffman/LaRoche Pharmaceuticals: two wall reliefs, nine-foot square, which were installed in their new office building outside of Basel. His work was included in the groundbreaking group exhibition Post-Hypnotic, which traveled throughout the United States from 1999-2001.
