David Richard Gallery is pleased to present Looking Back and Moving Forward, a solo exhibition of 12 artworks by Andrew Spence in his debut presentation with the gallery.


The presentation specifically debuts a suite of five abstract paintings that were conceived and initiated as a suite of hard edge silk screen prints on canvas in 1998. Completed recently, in 2020 and 2021, the suite, along with the process and resulting imagery is the cornerstone and critical focus of the exhibition. The presentation includes seven artworks that represent smaller series of paintings and prints from which imagery was appropriated and incorporated into the suite of paintings by layering certain forms and compositional elements on top of the silk screen images. Thus, the geometric screen prints serve as the ground, while the painted layered shapes and forms became the figure. The hybrid compositions combine and contrast visual and theoretical themes in art such as: non-objective abstraction and representational elements; hard edge and gestural abstraction; flat and illusory space; literal and imagined places; reality and memory; high art and graphic design; nature and architecture; original paintings and reproductions; handmade and prefab.
