David Row and Robert Zungu


The Philip Slein Gallery offers a double helping of contemporary art in its new show. David Row: Deep Focus is the first St. Louis exhibition for the New York artist, and it showcases his mastery of layering oil paint on polygonal canvasses. His dense mark-making is then covered by elliptical bands, but not entirely; the sheer mass of paint Row lays down bleeds through the bands, adding a definite heft to the finished piece. In Measured Painting, St. Louisan Robert Zungu shows his reflective abstract work. First he chromes an aluminum board with silver deposits, which results in a mirrorlike surface. Then he creates a geometric pattern on top using iridescent enamel ink. The viewer sees his own body reflected in the piece, becoming part of the final composition.
