The artist David Moreno takes a madcap approach to rule-based art, making works that follow specific geometries but at the same time rebel against them, straining towards a spirit of anarchic disorder. Inspired by the movies of David Lynch, Moreno early in his career worked with photography and film—mounting a 16mm movie camera on a rotating pedestal and spinning it around, for instance—but he is best known for his obsessive drawings, which he sometimes renders freehand, sometimes with draughtsman's tools.

A favorite of curators and critics (and sometimes both: he was included in a 1990 show co-curated by Jerry Saltz), Moreno was featured in such exhibitions as MoMA PS1's Greater New York 2005, Modern Starts: The Raw and the Cooked (2000) at the Museum of Modern Art, and the survey Revelations: David Moreno at the Neuberger Museum at SUNY Purchase.
