Bruno David Gallery is please to present Framed Abstractions 2005-2012 by Michael Byron. This is the artist second solo exhibition with the gallery.

The paintings, which have never been exhibited in St. Louis, are inspired by the organic geometry of the borders present in Indian miniatures. The artist has taken this decorative embellishment as a primary compositional element that operates at the crossroads of the geometric and the gestural. The results are both formally rigorous and lyrically poetic. In conjunction with the exhibition, Bruno David Gallery Publications will publish a catalogue of the artist's work with an exhibition history and bibliography.

Michael Byrons work is included in the museum collections of the Whitney Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Museum of Contemporary Religious Art St. Louis; the St. Louis Art Museum; the Tamayo Museum, Mexico City; and the Museum Boymans-Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, among others.

Byron was born in Rhode Island and received his M.F.A. from the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design in 1981. His inclusion in the Museum of Modern Art's An International Survey of Recent Painting and Sculpture in 1984 marked the beginning of his international career. After participating in the 1989 Whitney Biennial, he moved to Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where he lived and worked for five years. While in Amsterdam, he participated in group and solo exhibitions there and in Germany, France, Sweden and Spain. Four publications focusing on his work have been published and since his return to the United States in 1994, and his work has been exhibited in 22 solo exhibitions, in five two-person shows and in 52 group exhibitions in the United States and Europe, eight of which were at museums. He lives and works in Saint Louis, Missouri and is a professor of art at the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis.
