Andrew Masullo American, b. 1957
Andrew Masullo is a San Francisco-based abstract painter, whose bright, colorful oil paints merge a rigorous formalism with a sense of playful humor. The artist – or as he likes to call himself “stuff-maker” – entitles his artworks with a numbering system, intentionally avoiding any word associations that might suggest representational content.
He has had solo exhibitions at André Emmerich Gallery (1994, 1996), Joan Washburn Gallery (2000, 2002, 2004), Feature Inc. (2010), and Mary Boone Gallery (2013) all in New York; Thomas Ammann Fine Art, Zurich (1999); Gallery Paule Anglim, San Francisco (2000, 2006, 2008, 2012); Daniel Weinberg Gallery, Los Angeles (2007, 2009, 2011); Steven Zevitas Gallery, Boston (2007, 2011, 2015) and Texas Gallery, Houston (2009, 2014). Masullo was the recipient of a 2011 Guggenheim Foundation fellowship. A selection of 32 paintings were on view at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, as part of the 2012 Whitney Biennial.
