Derek Eller Gallery presents a selection of recent works on paper by Los Angeles-based artist David Korty. These new works speak to the artist’s roots as a printmaker and draughtsman. Both figurative and constructivist, the drawings embody a collision of ideas and themes both personal and imagined. In these works, Korty incorporates text as a formal element. For example, the ornately written words “Black Friday” (an unavoidable reference to consumerism gone awry) act as an accompaniment to a vaudeville-like parade of imagery spilling across the page. Made using the most basic artistic materials (gouache, pen, colored pencil and paper), Korty enforces the notion that, perhaps, the true subject on view is the simple act of creativity itself. This will be David Korty’s second solo exhibition with the gallery.

David Korty (b. San Francisco, CA, 1971) lives and works in Los Angeles. He received his M.F.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles, and his B.F.A. from the Rhode Island School of Design. He has shown extensively in Los Angeles, in solo exhibitions at Night Gallery, China Art Objects, Michael Kohn, and LAXART, at Derek Eller Gallery and Greene Naftali in New York, and at Sadie Coles HQ in London. Korty’s work has been acquired by the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, the Grunwald Center for Graphic Arts, Los Angeles, the Judith Rothschild Foundation, and the Rubell Collection. His work has been covered in Artforum, The New York Times, The Guardian, and Modern Painters, among other publications. A monograph of Korty’s work entitled Blue Shelves was published by Sadie Coles and Night Gallery in 2016.
