The precocious gifts of extreme abstract oil painter Ian Pines are on exhibit for the next two weeks downian.jpg at UCLA‘s New Wight Gallery. Pines, who graduated three years ago from UCSC with a BA in Art, is completing his MFA degree down south with a new suite of large-scale abstractions loaded with gesture, color and conceptual vigor.

Pictured here is Pines’ 48 x 96 inch masterwork entitled Vault of Heaven.

If you’re in LA next week don’t miss the chance to feast on Pines’ robust paintings.
