Gavin Turk: Kerze
November 7, 2022
Ben Brown Fine Arts, London presents Kerze, the fourth solo exhibition of British artist and ACS member Gavin Turk.
The show brings together a new series of 11 paintings inspired by Gerhard Richter’s iconic 1980s series of sublimely elegant and disquietingly haunting photorealist works of lit candles. The exhibition is aptly titled Kerze – the German word for candle.
In typical Turk fashion, the recognisable imagery is subverted by presenting the candles as recently extinguished, their curls of smoke trailing up the canvas.
Until 14 Jan 2023
