SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- Brian Gross Fine Art presents Filles de Kilimanjaro, an exhibition of recent oil paintings by Los Angeles artist Josh Dov. Departing from the structured grid paintings for which he is known, Dov continues his exploration of color and line through ethereal horizontal stripes in varied palettes. The exhibition continues through November 19.

In the works on view, the graphic, linear nature of Dov’s previous work is replaced by a soft, painterly quality, influenced by the artist’s use of oil paint rather than acrylic. Through this medium, the artist explores the ways in which edges meet rather than how lines intersect. The repetition of colors and variation in line quality create rhythmic vibrations, while the choice of colors in each work gives each painting its own unique atmosphere. For example, in Filles de Kilimanjaro, bold blues, greens, and purples of varying intensity create a dark, yet lively tone, while the subtle shifts in subdued blues and greens of In a Silent Way convey a cool, quiet mood.

Josh Dov, born in 1971 in Los Angeles, California, received his B.A. at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and his M.A. at the University of New Mexico. His work can be found in collections throughout California, including the Achenbach Foundation at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, the Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento, and the San Jose Museum of Art. The artist currently lives and works in Los Angeles. This is Dov’s fourth solo exhibition at Brian Gross Fine Art.
