Douglas Melini

Douglas Melini's canvases are a dazzling balance between object figuration and pure abstraction. His colorful, pattern-filled works combine the geometric composition and authority of Cubism with the disorienting visual chaos of Op Art, rendering Melini's own form of aesthetic reconfiguration. 

Melini has had solo exhibitions at the Schneider Museum of Art, Oregon (2018); Philip Slein Gallery, Missouri (2017); 11R, New York (2017); Feature Inc., New York (2012); The Suburban, Illinois (2011); Minus Space, New York (2009); a White Room at White Columns, New York (2003); and Richard Heller Gallery, California (1998), among others. Melini has also been included in group shows, including a 2008 exhibition at MoMA PS1, and a 2003 exhibition at the Dallas Art Museum. His work has been reviewed and featured in The New York Times, The New Criterion, Time Out, and New York Magazine.
