Bruno David Gallery’s opens its 12th season with “In Pono” a one-person exhibition of paintings and prints by Los Angeles-based artist Alex Couwenberg.
In his fourth solo show with the gallery, painter Alex Couwenberg creates images that are inspired by the elements from his surroundings. In Pono, is a Hawaiian term suggesting a state of harmony and balance. Not only does this reference the two different bodies of work in the exhibition (paintings and prints) and how they relate to one another, but also his outlook on life, family and studio practice. Couwenberg spends part of the year working and teaching on the Big Island of Hawaii and the rest of the year in Los Angeles. “It’s all about the pursuit of balance,” he says, keeping yourself healthy both physically and mentally and constantly moving forward in your vision.
