October 17 - November 30, 2019
A solo exhibition featuring paintings by Robin Bruch.
“An exhibition by Robin Bruch that includes work from two distinct series in her career: new paintings on canvas from 2019 and works on paper from the early 1970s. The two groups demonstrate the focus of her work over the years, showing the connections between her unique combination of painterly touch and geometric abstraction. The resonance between the two groups of work reinforces understanding of her work. Coming out of the late 60s from Bennington College, she like other artists of her era – Harriet Korman, Stephen Mueller, and Mary Heilmann – found unique ways of moving beyond the prevalent influences – color field painting and abstract expressionism. Finding inspiration in a myriad of other sources such as tantric art, Native American textiles, ceramics and more obscure (at the time) artists such as Hilma af Klint, Bruch has continued with a very direct and clear distillation of forms in levitating colors. Bruch was included in the 1975 Whitney Biennial and had several one person shows at Bykert Gallery, J.H. Duffy & Sons, and Kornblee Gallery, all in New York. Her connection to Houston started in the early 70s with exhibitions at Texas Gallery and its predecessor Contract Graphics along with exhibitions at D. Clayton & Co. and Hadler Rodriguez. In 1972 she was artist in residence at Rice University. The exhibition will be on view through November 30th.”
