Raymond Pettibon: “Are Your Motives Pure? Surfers 1987-2012” at Venus Over Manhattan
April 3 – May 17
Opening: April 3, 6-8pm
980 Madison Avenue
This exhibition will focus exclusively on Raymond Pettibon’s “surfer paintings.”
Among works on view are early small-scale, monochrome India ink paintings; numerous paintings from the 1990s when the artist introduced color to his work; and a group of rare, large-scale paintings measuring up to nearly 10 feet wide – bravura works replete with the fluid dynamism of Pettibon’s line and the enduring potency of a favorite metaphor.
