David Korty is a Los Angeles-based artist known for his mixed-media technique which combines elements of painting, frottage, and printmaking to create colorful geometric compositions. By employing simple methods and a specifically defined palette to create these elements, Korty is able to devote himself fully to the pained and precise structuring of each composition, which hearken in equal part to Russian Constructivism and Pop Art. Though at times representational elements appear in Korty's work, a formal logic dominates, pushing even discernible passages of text to the point of abstraction. Korty has shown extensively in Los Angeles, in solo exhibitions at Night Gallery, China Art Objects, Michael Kohn, and LAXART, at Derek Eller Gallery and Greene Naftali in New York, and at Sadie Coles HQ in London. His work is in the permanent collections of the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, the Grunwald Center for Graphic Arts, Los Angeles, the Judith Rothschild Foundation, and the Rubell Collection.
