Of Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks, Mulholland Drive, and the original Dune, film writer and director David Lynch has been added to the roster of one of the world’s most renowned galleries—Pace. In addition to his well-known surrealist films, Lynch has also been a trained painter since the early days of his career.
Opening November 4, “Big Bongo Night” will feature visual works by Lynch, such as semi-abstract paintings, mixed media lamp sculptures, and a work on paper that coincides with an exhibition of his simultaneously running downtown at Sprerone Westwater Gallery. The show, “I Like To See My Sheep” is dedicated to his works on paper, showing his unique practice. Both exhibitions feature Lynch’s distinctive artistic style, which he employs throughout his films, creating an experience so unexplainable that he coined the term “Lynchian.”
Lynch has been passionate about his career as a visual artist prior to the release of his 1997 film Eraserhead. He has exhibited his works at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Jack Tilton, and Sperone Westwater Gallery, and was previously represented by Kayne Griffin gallery in Los Angeles.
“Big Bongo Night” will be on view at Pace Gallery from November 4, 2022 through December 22, 2022, at 540 W 25th Street, New York, NY 10001.
