Zu Leben und Werk: Walter Darby Bannard also known as Darby Bannard (born September 23, 1934, New Haven, CT) is an American abstract painter.
Bannard attended Phillips Exeter Academy and Princeton University, where he struck up a friendship and working relationship with Frank Stella, which continued after graduation and eventuated in the extreme minimalism both artists engaged in around 1959 and thereafter. The first paintings from the 1959-1965 period contained few forms, as little as a single band painted around a field of color, and then developed into somewhat more complex geometric forms by the mid-60s. In the late 60s the forms dissolved into pale, atmospheric fields of color applied with rollers and paint-soaked rags. He was associated with Lyrical Abstraction, Minimalism, Formalism (art), Post-painterly Abstraction and Color Field painting.
By 1970 he had begun to use the new acrylic mediums and his paintings evolved into colorful expanses of richly colored gels and polymers applied with squeegees and commercial floor brooms, which continues to the present.
Bannard#8217;s first solo show was at the Tibor de Nagy gallery in January, 1965 and he had numerous exhibits there until 1970, when he began showing at the Larry Rubin Gallery, which became the Knoedler Gallery, where he showed for the next 15 years. He has exhibited in numerous museums and galleries nationally and internationally to the present day.
Bannard has had close to a hundred solo shows, been in several hundred group shows and is represented in the collections of all the major New York museums and many others around the world. He is also a prolific writer on art with over a hundred published essays and reviews, has taught, lectured and participated in panel discussions extensively and has been a Co-chair of the International Exhibitions Committee of the National Endowment for the Arts. He curated and wrote the catalog for the first comprehensive retrospective exhibition of the paintings of Hans Hofmann, at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C.
Currently Bannard is Professor and Head of Painting of the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Miami.
