Don Dudley


acrylic on birch plywood
74 x 33 1/2 x 3 inches

California born, New York-based artist Don Dudley’s work constitutes a graphic organization of meticulously planned materials and surfaces to create paintings, sculpture, and installations. Dudley has been examining opticality and modularity using a minimal but striking visual language for the last several decades, honing his unfinished pursuit of industrial sublimity. Dudley’s #15 holds a strong verticality only to be intercepted by horizontal line, repeated shapes, and saturated color. #15 is a harmoniously put together object, standing as an optimal example of material, surface, and color within Dudley’s greater oeuvre. Dudley’s work has been exhibited at prominent institutions including PS1 Contemporary Art Center and New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York. He has had solo shows at Galerie Farideh Cadot, Paris; Art, Design & Architecture Museum, UC Santa Barbara; Mendes Wood, São Paulo; and Galerie Thomas Zander, Cologne.
