David Barr Structuralist Relief #259 Signed Acrylic Painting on Masonite 1986

Sale price$2,500.00


A chic geometric sculptural acrylic painting on Masonite titled Structuralist Relief #259 by David Barr. Created in 1986. Signed, dated, and titled on the verso with the original gallery tag from Donald Morris Gallery Inc, Birmingham, Michigan. From a private collection. This is an incredible example of one of his wall-hanging structurist reliefs similar to his artwork in Hart Plaza, Detroit titled Transcending. According to the artist, the “realities” that propel our natural universe are now understood to be essentially invisible. As an artist, I choose to explore those invisible realities intellectually, emotionally, and intuitively…as a sensor, a conduit, and a transformer of those experiences into a new, visible expression. In order to translate the organizing processes of nature, I have developed a constructive visual vocabulary of color/form/light/space/time, a metaphor for the shifting relationships that comprise “reality.” Dimensions: 45.5"w x 9.5"d x 47.5"h. In very good vintage condition.
