Brian Calvin’s disarmingly low-key paintings explore a world populated with androgynous bohemians, skinnies in groups and trippy teenage characters coolly detached and aimlessly gazing out from a sun-drenched, Southern Californian backdrop. Something of a celebration of slackerdom, they also reveal the artist’s keen powers of observation, rigorous approach to his craft and attention to the formal dimensions of his medium. The Calvin rug captures the subtle gradients of his pastel images.
Brian Calvin lives and works in Ojai, CA and is represented by Almine Rech and Anton Kern Gallery. Group exhibitions have included Blum & Poe, and the Gladstone Gallery.
