Transmitting Waves

September 12 - November 10, 2018

Nassos Daphnis

September 12 - November 10, 2018

Richard Taittinger Gallery presents Transmitting Waves, a solo exhibition of paintings and studies by Nassos Daphnis. Transmitting Waves features works from the early 1960s to the 1980s. This show is a homage to and a reimagining of a 1983 show at the legendary Leo Castelli Gallery.

Castelli cultivated an impressive roster of artists including Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Frank Stella, and Nassos Daphnis. Daphnis was one of his most shown artists with 17 solo shows. He was actively supported by Castelli for 38 years and his work has been placed in some of the most prestigious institutional collections including the Guggenheim, the Whitney, and the MoMA.

The Transmitting Waves artworks employ Daphnis’ distinctive use of primary colors and geometric shapes. Inspired by an interest in invisible influences on the physical world, such as magnetic forces or radio waves, these pieces serve to both comment on transmission, and to transmit information and emotion themselves. Daphnis struggled to decide whether he was an artist or a scientist. These works, which highlight Daphnis’ interest in science and mathematic precision, are comprised of systematic lines of primary colors radiating out from and towards each other, meeting, and crossing rhythmically.
