Raymond Pettibon “To Wit” @ David Zwirner, NYC



Via Juxtapoz

On September 12, 2013, Juxtapoz #100 issue cover artist Raymond Pettibon will open a new solo show, To Wit, at David Zwirner in NYC. The Southern California based artist will present a series of new drawings and colllage that are “unified by their bold, vivid lines and striking compositions. Fragments from American society have been distilled into key images, which often incorporate texts of varying length, from one word to several paragraphs. The selection of texts, spanning a broad array of influences from popular media to Marcel Proust, William Faulkner, Henry James, Gustave Flaubert, and the Bible, relate both rhythmically and narratively to the visual content of his drawings, although their relationship may not always be immediately apparent.”

We gathered some images from Pettibon’s past exhibitions at Zwirner in the gallery above…
