David Park

One of the Bay Area figurative painters, this painting titled "Kids on Bikes", painted in 1950 by David Park, interests me with its flattening of the picture plane and the perspective showing the huge foreground kid, with his friend riding off.
I knew I would use this painting when I read a quote from" Bay Area Figurative Art 1950-1965 "saying, "Park emphasizes the analogies between abstract and representational painting and points to artists' absolute freedom to move between them." Yes!
