Artist, poet, and performer Todd Colby will be showing his recent paintings and works on paper at Bureau Gasser for one day only on Friday, October 13 from 10am-8pm with an opening reception from 6pm-8pm. Colby's 11" x 14" paintings are gestural, visceral, and chromatically electric. Colby veers masterfully from abstraction to figuration and often includes words and phrases in his paintingsthat serve as both captions and commands. This will be Colby's third solo show of his art and his first at Bureau Gasser. 

Todd Colby has published six books of poetry. Most recently, he is the author of Splash State (The Song Cave, 2014), and Flushing Meadows (Scary Topiary Press, 2012). His earlier books include: RipsnortCushRiot in the Charm Factory: New and Selected Writings, and Tremble & Shine, all published by Soft Skull Press. His work has been broadcast nationally on PBS, NPR, Garrison Keillor’s Writer’s Almanac, and KCRW’s Bookworm, hosted by Michael Silverblatt. He was the lead singer for the critically acclaimed band Drunken Boat. Todd is a frequent collaborator with artist Marianne Vitale, and the art collective Kunstverein. His books and paintings with the artist David Lantow can be seen in the Brooklyn Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art special collections libraries and Picture Room in Brooklyn, NY. Colby has given readings at Maison de la Poesie (Paris), Oxfam Books (London), The Poetic Research Bureau (Los Angeles), The Public Theater, Performa 13, The Poetry Project, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Rubin Museum, New York University, The New School for Social Research, OMI Arts Center, Brooklyn Public Library, Cornell University, Dia Foundation, MoMA PS1, PS 122, and more.
