David Lynch hasn't released a new feature since "Inland Empire" in 2006, but the director has been creating visual art and exhibiting surreal creations in gallery shows.
Lynch held solo exhibitions in Los Angeles in 2009 and 2011, and will be opening yet another show this month at Kayne Griffin Corcoran.
The exhibition, which is being curated by Brett Littman, executive director of the Drawing Center in New York, will focus on how Lynch uses "naming" in film, photography, drawings and other works dating from 1968 to the present.
Kayne Griffin Corcoran said the show will run from Nov. 23 to Jan. 4, and will feature a group of new paintings, drawings and watercolors by Lynch.
The filmmaker, whose credits include "Blue Velvet," "Mulholland Dr." and the "Twin Peaks" television series, has previously exhibited his art at William Griffin Gallery in Santa Monica. In 2009, he showed original artwork for the album "Dark Night of the Soul," featuring music by Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse, at L.A.'s Michael Kohn Gallery.
Next year, Lynch's work will be the subject of a retrospective show at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, where the director studied in his youth. The show will feature approximately 75 paintings and drawings created by Lynch since 1965. The exhibition will also include "Six Men Getting Sick" (1967), his first short film.
The exhibition in Philadelphia is scheduled to run Sept. 5, 2014, to Jan. 15, 2015.
