SANTA FE, NM.- David Richard Gallery is representing Tim Bavington and his spectacular color-based abstractions rooted in Rock and Roll music, color and visual perception. Bavington’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, Sunshine Maker, will survey new and earlier works with a selection of ‘greatest hits’ from 2002 to 2017. “Sunshine Maker” will be presented August 5 through September 2, 2017 with an opening reception on Saturday, August 5.

Music and color are the core of Bavington’s paintings. He translates music into a visual experience with his unique system of pairing musical notes with specific hues in the color wheel. Colored stripes are his musical notes that allow him to playback the base lines, rhythms and string plucking guitar solos in his stunning retinal compositions that challenge visual perception. His love of 1960s and 70s rock and roll music by the Stones, Cream, Beatles and Hendrix is the underpinning that inspires his translations of color and abstraction into nearly audible visual experiences.

Tim Bavington was born in England in 1966. He moved to the United States in 1984 to pursue his career in art. Bavington earned a bachelor’s degree at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. His early post-graduate work involved comics and contributions to The Simpsons television show. In 1993 he moved to Las Vegas where he met David Hickey at University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Bavington decided to continue his education at UNLV, earning a Master’s in Fine Arts in 1990.

In the early 2000s Bavington introduced the musical scales of the guitar into his artistic practice. His artwork has continued to evolve with its connection to music and his exhibitions throughout the United States have received high acclaim.

Bavington currently lives in Las Vegas. His work is included in the collections of the Portland Art Museum in Oregon, The Museum of Modern Art in New York City, The Denver Art Museum in Colorado, the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego, California, Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York, Fredrick R. Weisman Foundation in Los Angeles, California, Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, California and the Palm Springs Art Museum in California, among others. Additionally, he created a major commission called “Pipe Dream” for Symphony Park at the Smith Center for Performing Arts in Las Vegas, Nevada. Each pipe in this beautiful and colorful sculpture represents a note in the classical masterpiece, “Fanfare for the Common Man,” by Aaron Copland.
