DAVID KORTY‘s paintings examine the pages of books, the compositions of newspapers and the borders of photographs.

The body of work considers various patterns and shapes embedded in the ephemera of the everyday. The text of a newspaper appears as a pattern of triangles, circles and squares as opposed to letters. Even the frame of a face consists of curves and shapes—just as the cover of book or the frame of a house.

Geometry becomes a language, rendering content indecipherable. KORTY’s paintings oscillate between these abstractions and their identifiable subjects—clusters of paper, pages, and photographs.

Additionally his color palette and the graphic style are quite simply irresistible!

DAVID KORTY was born in 1971 in San Francisco, CA. He studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and the University of California.
