Catalogue Note

The flattened planes and bold colors in 'Nightblind' evoke California-based Brian Calvin's signature figurative style.  In recent years Calvin has continued to draw on this motif, often evoking abstraction as he crops closer to his subjects.  Calvin's work is held in the permanent collections of several esteemed institutions, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
