John Gibson

USA
Born in 1958
Painter.

After completing his art studies at Yale in 1982, John Gibson continued his search in simple and balanced geometrical shapes and their reflection in a neutral space. He employed the rather classic technique of oil paint on wooden boards, not unlike the alter pieces of the Italian Renaissance.

Untitled A poses a number of contemporary questions about painting: balance and deconstruction, tradition and modernity, representation and abstraction. It seems a paradox that the answers provided by John Gibson are expressed in painting that appears out of its time.
