The Manresa Seasons: Recent Still Lifes | David Kimball Anderson


This exhibition will be on view at the Art Museum, at 4 Tait Avenue, from November 6, 2014 through January 31, 2015. 

The Museums of Los Gatos Art Museum is pleased to present the exhibition The Manresa Seasons: Recent Still Lifes, a series of new work by David Kimball Anderson. This series of sculptures was conceived as a collaboration and expression of a mutual aesthetic appreciation between David Kimball Anderson and the chef-founder of the two Michelin Star-rated Los Gatos restaurant Manresa, David Kinch. The Manresa Seasons explores earthly and ethereal cycles of nature with materials that reflect those ebbing and flowing states. With these still lifes, David Kimball Anderson creates moments of pause and reflection. He employs steel, bronze and paint to depict organic elements and man made objects. As the seasons change and nature reminds us of its ephemeral character, the sculptures provide an opportunity for the viewer to contemplate the beauty of those changes. 

David Kimball Anderson, born in Los Angeles in 1946, began his art practice by learning metallurgy and studying art at Claremont Graduate School and San Francisco Art Institute. His résumé includes exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art and SFMOMA, and includes three awards of the National Endowment for the Arts Individual Grant. He currently lives and works in Santa Cruz and the Bay Area.

The Manresa Seasons will be the last art exhibition at the historic adobe firehouse at 4 Tait Avenue, before the museum officially move into our New Museum Los Gatos space at the Los Gatos Civic Center, in spring of 2015.
