New still-life and landscape paintings are presented in the British artist’s second solo exhibition at the gallery’s Hong Kong space. The works were produced ‘en plein air’ in a new studio in Malibu, California. The works’ titles and expressive imagery evoke ocean waves and the flora of Malibu at sunrise and sunset, with suns, moons, rocks, and skies rendered in vibrant colour and undulating lines.
The artist first achieved widespread recognition through his original and vigorous approach to the subject of the human body. Utilising mediums associated with classical and modernist sculpture alongside less traditional materials, he builds monumental figures whose surfaces and structures reveal the processes of their making. He describes his works on canvas and paper as a cross between ‘drawing and mapping’, and the present exhibition sees him further extending this aspect of his practice.
