Eric Dever in Chelsea
July 10, 2014 - East Hampton Star
An exhibition of paintings by Eric Dever, who lives and works in Water Mill, will open today at the Berry Campbell Gallery in Chelsea and run through Aug. 9. Mr. Dever has pursued intensely focused investigations into the methods and materials of painting for more than a decade. In the past his compositions were largely geometric, including concentric circles graded from dark to light and variations on the grid. His most recent work has broadened into free shapes and tactile surfaces, the starting point for which was a rose in his garden that he deconstructed.
Mr. Dever has exhibited throughout the United States and abroad, most recently in the show “Redacted” at the Islip Art Museum. Jodie Manasevit, an abstract painter who lives in Brooklyn, will be exhibiting at the gallery concurrently with Mr. Dever. An opening reception will be held today from 6 to 8 p.m.
