David Matthew King
The Dot Project is pleased to present The Little Prince, a solo exhibition of new small works by American artist David Matthew King. The exhibition comprises of new paintings made during the artist’s three week stay in Paris earlier this year.
In response to his time in Paris and the conditions of the studio space, King experimented with smaller scale, narrative quality and new materials: self-stained wood frames that are an integral part of the works. The title The Little Prince is borrowed from French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic work – a book that, although gifted to the artist several times, he refused to read. The series appears to follow its own internal logic, fusing King’s analytical approach to painting : self-imposed rules and use of primary colour-centric palette, with assured, expressive marks and childlike shapes that become a form of personal storytelling.
