Dominique Lévy Gallery Presents ROMAN OPALKA: PAINTING, 9/4-10/18
by BWW News Desk - Aug 18, 2014

In 1965, French-born Polish artist Roman Opalka picked up a delicate No. 0 brush in his Warsaw studio and placed the number “1” at the top left- hand corner of a canvas. With this gesture began an enterprise later titled 1965 / 1 – ?, that would consume the rest of the artist's career in a determined but deliberately quixotic quest to paint every number to infinity. By the time of his death, Roman Opalka had placed more than five million numerals on 233 canvases and made unblinking photographs of his face each day in front of the work. The artist's numbers increased as his body deteriorated, and together these inverse phenomena – the overlapping fates of body and soul – yielded an unstinting visual diary of one man'ssimultaneous rage against and embrace of the mortal conundrum. Viewing that diary reveals the philosophical daring behind Opalka's discipline, the poignancy in his strategically dry but ultimately breathtaking search for the sublime within the methodology of his counting. Today, Roman Opalka's 1965 / 1 – ? stands as one of modern art's most powerful and poetic inquiries into the mutability of time and the spirit's response to it. (more...)
