Exhibition of the most recent constructions by Ted Larsen opens at David Richard Gallery
Ted Larsen, Personal Space, 2012. Salvage Steel Rivets Welded Steel, 26 x 24 x 10.
SANTA FE, NM.- David Richard Gallery presents an exhibition of the most recent constructions by Ted Larsen comprised of salvaged and repurposed metal that features sixteen new wall-hung, floor and pedestal pieces. The exhibition, “Some Assembly Required,” is being presented August 2 through September 7, 2013.

Larsen’s artwork is reductive, material and instantly intriguing. The openness and range of dimensions for this newest work—from a small floor piece 12 x 7 x 12 inches to a wall-mounted and floor supported piece of 80 x 30 x 73 inches—creates a tension between the constructions and the exhibition space as well as between the various artworks. Using wooden and metal supports clad in repurposed metal and other non-traditional and industrial materials, often with exposed rivets and support structures, Larsen reveals both his process and patina of the salvaged steel. Through his wall constructions he explores the tension between painting and sculpture, referencing and conflating Minimalism, hard-edge painting and Op Art. There is also an element of discovery as the multi-dimensional pieces engage the viewer and beg investigation of the sides and behind the protruding elements, evoking a Zen-inspired sensibility that celebrates chance and a continuum of the materials from one form and purpose to another.

Ted Larsen (b. 1964, USA) exhibits his art nationally and has had over eighty solo exhibitions in galleries and artwork presented in museums in the US, including the New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe, The Albuquerque Museum, The Amarillo Museum of Art, The Spiva Center for the Arts in Joplin, Missouri, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. He has received grants from the Surdna Foundation and the Pollock Krasner Foundation, as well as residencies with the Edward F. Albee Foundation and Asilah Arts Festival in Morocco, where he was selected to be the USA representative. Larsen’s artwork is included in the collections of The New Mexico Museum of Art, The New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs, The Edward F. Albee Foundation, Proctor & Gamble, The Bolivian Consulate, Reader’s Digest, PepsiCo, The University of Miami, Krasel Art Center, Dreyfus Funds, JP Morgan Chase, Forbes and Pioneer Hi-Bred, Inc. He has been featured in Art in America, ArtNews, SouthWest Art, Mountain Living, Architectural Digest and Art Gallery International magazines. He has had reviews in The New York Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Denver Post, and The Dallas Morning News among others. Larsen’s work appears in the publications Art On The Edge, Biennial Southwest, The Curtain of Trees, New American Paintings and Millennium Collection.
