Gebert Contemporary is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings by Dirk De Bruycker. This new body of work is exciting in its passion and richness. Colors are dense and saturated. While the palette of purple, yellow, oxblood, and orange may be familiar, it is the monolithic blocks of color which startle and surprise.
Dirk De Bruycker was born in Ghent, Belgium. Although based in Santa Fe, he spends much of his time in Nicaragua. The paintings of Dirk De Bruycker are included in the collections of the Daum Museum of Contemporary Art, the Ministry of Visual Arts in Brussels, and the New Mexico Museum of Art. The Art in Public Places Program chose two paintings by De Bruycker for installation at the University of New Mexico. De Bruycker’s work is also included in the Bellagio Collection (Las Vegas), the Microsoft Collection (Seattle), the Sprint Collection (Kansas City), the collection of the Federal Reserve in Kansas City, the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York and many international private collections.
