Listed Artist Darryl Nettles Painting - Calendar #1

  • Sale
  • Regular price $0.01


The first of two listed artist Darryl Nettles paintings we acquired - this one titled Calendar 1. 1979. Signed painting of a calendar. We see a calendar yet we see a painted artistic idea of a calendar.

D Nettles is an American painter and has been installed and showcased in galleries throughout the Unites States.
Described in a review done on the artist's work similar to the Calendar, seen as linguistic impressionism - pseudo-cryptographic patterns of thin block letters that are tightly juxtaposed and overlapped on soft-edged crossword puzzle grids. 

The painting is in it's original chrome frame. The framer/previous owner labeled the reverse side and oddly misspelled the artist's name on the frame label. The two paintings we acquired must have been showcased in a corporate environment and were purchased at that time in 1981. This sale is for one of the two paintings. See the listing on Chairish for the other companion painting.

The front side of the piece is signed by the artist and dated '79.
We have not removed the piece from the original chrome frame and plexiglass. It appears to be in good condition with some original pin holes at the corners where it must have been held onto an easel. The intention of running/blurred paint is intentional.
Frame size 30.5 W x 42.5 H
