Damian Stamer Talks at Sherrick & Paul

Friday at 3:00 pm, painter Damian Stamer will give a talk and walk through of his solo exhibition at Sherrick & Paul. Susan Sherrick featured Stamer alongside William Eggleston and Hiroshi Sugimoto in the gallery’s inaugural exhibition; if that’s not a vote of confidence, I don’t know what is.

Stamer paints fields of abstraction in black, white and mostly a rich palate of grays. He uses broad brushstrokes to paint rural landscapes and falling-apart farm houses, worn down appliances begging for a proper burial. In some he adds color, a sunny yellow, a hot magenta, a faint blue. Although he’s only been working several years, he has a distinct point of view and voice. Check out some of his 2014 work I snagged from his website.
