Dan McCleary’s sixth exhibition at Craig Krull Gallery will fill all three of our gallery spaces. Regarded by Christopher Knight at the LA TIMES as “one of the finest figure painters working today,” McCleary employs classical methodologies and devices like the golden mean, as well as the fundamental building blocks of design; cube, sphere, cylinder and cone.

His portraits and simple still-lifes contain the gravity, structure and balance of Piero della Francesca. This exhibition also includes a number of his new flower paintings, which reflect the grace and observation of the florals that Manet painted at the end of his life.

In addition to his artistic practice, Dan McCleary is the founder and director of Art Division, an art school dedicated to underserved young adults, located near MacArthur Park.
