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.
