(Gallery 1)

back to current exhibition

Marking the artist's second solo exhibition with the gallery, Ann Wimsatt presents an exhibition of new prints titled "Keep it With You." In conjunction with the exhibition, Bruno David Gallery Publications will publish an exhibition catalog of the artists work with an exhibition history and bibliography.

Her work is an exploration of her interest in the way we individually and collectively experience iconic architecture in our memory and imagination. In this new work, she has taken her detailed architecture paintings and set them as fragments in a flowing, imagined space. Per the habits of her architecture work, she has worked back and forth between the real (actual drawing and painting), and the surreal, (computer-aided drawing, painting and printing). The new work continues to examine the way that iconic architecture lives as fragments, in the individual and collective mind, across time.

Ann Wimsatt, was born in Chicago, Illinois, received her MArch from Tulane School of Architecture in New Orleans. She is a painterly abstractionist whose work widens the boundaries of contemporary representation. She trained with both Jame Stewart Polshek and IM Pei before opening her own architectural firm in New York City. She practiced architecture in New York, Singapore, Saint Louis, New Zealand and Abu Dhabi, and built over hundred projects on four continents. Wimsatt has a keen interest in the enduring resilience of cities, which led her to research and publish a number of scholarly articles on the urban history of the founding of Abu Dhabi and Saint Louis. She lives and works in Saint Louis, Missouri.
