“postapocalypticBLACK™”, An Exhibition of New Constructions by Gabriel J. Shuldiner in His First Solo Exhibition at David Richard Gallery

Shuldiner combines found objects and castaway items and assembles them to create wall-hung constructions, all painted in black, unifying the diverse materials and putting the focus on form. This work is raw, physical, edgy and very black. 

David Richard Gallery is pleased to be presenting its first exhibition of abstract paintings and constructions by Gabriel J. Shuldiner, a young New York-based artist. Shuldiner uses found objects and diverse castaway materials in his unique explorations of object-making and painting. He focuses on the negative space, the mishaps and accidents that occur in everyday life. In Shuldiner’s words, by “combining elements of minimalism and punk attitude, the idea is to remix unmatchable elements, slash boundaries and create a [beautiful] tension between [opposites]… a sort of post_postmodern, post_medium, post_apocalyptic existential zen meditation at times deceptively sardonic, cynical and nihilistic…” His artwork is abstract and reductive, influenced a bit by minimalism and conceptualism, yet very painterly and gestural with a physicality and spontaneity that draws visceral reactions. Shuldiner refers to his work as “bruteminimalism™” and enjoys his use of irony combined with the power and edge of black, “the most mysterious, powerful and misunderstood [non] color_.” His combinations of polarities and materiality create seductive wall sculptures that trigger immediate viewer engagement, either because of the physical presence of the piece or immediate internal connection.

Shuldiner studied at New York University, School of Visual Arts and Parsons The New School for Design in New York. His awards include an Elizabeth Foundation For the Arts Studio Residency, 2013-2015 and Artist In The Marketplace, Aim 30, Bronx Museum of the Arts, Bronx, NY, 2010-2011. His artwork has been exhibited in many shows including: “postapocalypticblack™”, New Museum, NY; Post Cards From the Edge at Luhring Augstine, Bronx Museum of Art, NY; and Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, IN, among others.
