Spanbock’s large formal controlled sweeps of the brush, laden with limited palette ranges, both engage with aspects of painting, particularly abstract expressionism, while refuting the emotionalism of the gestural movement. The paintings rely on the basics—color, stroke, materiality, and composition—but retain their identity as markers of time and experience, if indirect and diffused. The gesture that he does use is straight, from one side to another, a discreet unit amongst many. The inter-relationship between these units offers a metaphor for society as much as our own histories, of actions and memories of those. (MP). http://www.davidspanbock.com
