Exhibitions at Tripoli Gallery


Dan McCarthy (b. 1962, Honolulu, HI) earned his BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1984. Recent solo exhibitions include Venus Over Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA (2015), and Anton Kern Gallery in New York, NY (2014). McCarthy has also had solo exhibitions at Galerie Suzanne Tarasieve in Paris, France (2012) and The Journal Gallery in Brooklyn, NY (2011). Using colors that appear washed out and runny, his works seem otherworldly, yet are straightforward and emotive. Recent works include ceramic Facepots, inspired by the history of the vessel in ceramics, and paintings on shaped canvases, two-dimensional depictions of rainbows, clouds, and other symbols of nature. McCarthy lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
