Robert Nava Grapples with Mythical Creatures for "Vs" Exhibition

Impulsive and acid-induced depictions of otherworldly beings.

Having displayed works for Jeffrey Deitch Gallery’s “Punch” exhibition in LA and executing a graphic collaboration with Heron Preston, Robert Nava is currently the subject of a solo exhibition at the famed Night Gallery in the west coast city. Entitled “Vs,” the extensive presentation features new original paintings by the Brooklyn-based artist. Across the pieces, the artist’s unruly depictions of mythical creatures and imaginative robots are observed in the selection. The works were made using a wide range of materials including acrylic, oil stick, and graphite pencils.

“These deceptively simple works, with their unexpectedly complex colors and intuitively minimal forms, slowly reveal Nava’s virtuosity and rigorous labor,” said Night Gallery in a statement. “The paintings come to present the artist facing off against the limits of his own imagination, grappling with the energy of each of his creatures.”

With an opening reception held this July 20, “Vs” is still on view until August 17. Visit Night Gallery’s website for further details.

Elsewhere in art, Saatchi will bring together 120 emerging artists for The Other Art Fair in Dallas.
