The David Park effect


  1. the book, David Park, Painter Nothing Held Back, by his daughter Helen park Bigelow is beautiful and illuminating.

  2. Jim VanKirk says:

    A great Artist.
    Thanks for reminding me.

  3. A biography of Park is coming out next spring, from UC press.

  4. As I understand it, an early 50’s traveling exhibition of Oscar Kokoshka at the Fine Arts Museum inspired not only Park, but other Bay Area painters to delve into figurative abstraction — despite the emerging prominence of New York School AbEx.

  5. You’re so right about David Park. When thinking about Bay Area Figurative, he’s the goods.

  6. I love that people know my father’s work. Now, all of you, find the newly released biography of him, David Park, Painter, by Nancy Boas. A terrific partner to David Park, Painter, Nothing Held Back, by his other daughter Helen Park Bigelow.
