Tim Bavington @ Mark Moore Gallery

Last week, Mark Moore Gallery opened its fifth solo exhibition of new work by painter, Tim Bavington. Decade celebrates Bavington's tenth year of representation by the gallery, and will feature new works alongside his iconic striped paintings. The show will be on display at the Los Angeles gallery April 29 - May 29.

The Museum featured Step (In) Out, 2007 in our 2008 exhibtion, Las Vegas Diaspora: Emergence of Contemporary Art from the Neon Homeland, which exhibited works of twenty-six artists who received their degrees from the University of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Also, Mark and Hilarie Moore (of Mark Moore Gallery) have made two to three significant gifts of art to museums each year for the last sixteen years and plan on continuing. Through their family trust they have made other contributions to the Orange County Museum of Art; Downey Art Museum; Portland Art Museum; Madison Museum of Contemporary Art; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego; Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles; Brooklyn Art Museum; Las Vegas Art Museum; Santa Barbara Art Museum; Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego; and The Contemporary Museum Honolulu.

Decade celebrates the 10 years that Las Vegas-based painter Tim Bavington has been exhibiting in Los Angeles. The 15-work show, at Mark Moore Gallery, reveals that the London-born artist is in it for the long haul and capable of taking viewers on rides filled with more twists and turns than can be imagined.

Bavington's new spray-painted stripe paintings are as gorgeous as any of the delectable abstractions he has made in the past, but far more complex in their emotional resonance. Alongside the joy and playfulness that seemed to be Bavington's specialty come slower, more savory sensations: rich mixes of sentiments seasoned by sorrow, suffering and loss but still thrilled by the rhythms and textures of life's little pleasures... read the rest of the article on Culture Monster.
