London gallery David Zwirner presented an exhibition“Kerry James Marshall. Painting History - the first exhibition of new works by the American artist since his successful retrospective Mastry and the second personal presentation in this exhibition space.
Marshall's works reveal and question social notions of beauty, taste, and strength. Conducting a constant dialogue with six centuries of painting, he skillfully rethought and updated her paths, compositions and styles. He takes artifacts from canvases of his predecessors and incorporates them into modern surroundings.
In the presented works, Marshall promotes the concept of paintings as objects that are created, exhibited and distributed. He not only explores the formal evolution of the environment, but equally takes into account the history of our relations with it.
