It’s a real pleasure to announce that 2 of my paintings will be on display at George Billis Gallery in Los Angeles in May. I’ve been connected with the gallery for a couple years now, showing a few pieces in their Culver City, LA gallery as well as a few in their home gallery located in Chelsea, NYC.
These pieces will be included in a group exhibition between May 19th – June 23rd, 2018. An opening reception will be held Saturday May 19, 5-8pm. If you’re in the LA area, I recommend checking out the gallery. Read more below.

“Absolute: Nostalgia”, Reaching Inward Through Newest Painting
by Daric Gill
Absolute: Nostalgia is a deep painting from a deep place. Three ginkgo biloba leaves, yellowed and fallen, arch their way down the center of a walnut panel. Flanking the ginkgo are a set of baby’s breath flowers angling in from the lower right corner. Tucked neatly at the bottom of the foliage is a small black card. Draping down from the top are clusters of vibrant red-orange berries; fruit from the green hawthorn tree. Subtle color changes to the wood grain show a neatly vertical composition. A gradient of rectangles radiate from the center. Watch how it was made and see more images below the article.
