SANTA FE, NM.-
Tim Bavington's first solo exhibition with David Richard Gallery
surveys paintings from 2002 through 2017. Bavingtons artworks are spectacular color-based abstractions rooted in color theory and visual perception, while being inspired by Rock and Roll music.
Music and color are the core of Bavingtons 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.
