DAVID MALEK: Safety Yellow

SAKS and Stéphane Ribordy are pleased to present the solo debut of New York based artist David Malek in Europe. For his exhibition in Geneva, the artist presents a selection of new enamel on board paintings.
 
Safety Yellow is the name of an industrial color used in New York City for subway railings, curbs, street signs. It refers here to the actual material of the picture.
 
David Malek’s paintings range from geometric abstraction to figurative derivatives. The artist investigates a broad range of optical phenomena using paint or more precisely enamel for its specific colors and material properties. This opticality often takes place within the painting or between paintings (as demonstrated earlier this year at his show at Smith & Stewart in New York where « the after-image of one painting extends across the surface of the surrounding paintings »).
 
Tensions and interactions emerge from picture to picture.
 
Malek's paintings are fresh, colorful, positive and above all visually strong. The energy that emerges from his work is the result of an ongoing investigation and attraction in a multiplicity of fields such as Sci-Fi movies physics, astronomy and certain sub-genres of pop music.
