The artist’s new paintings will be presented in his most extensive exhibition in London in many years.
One of the most celebrated painters of his generation, Adrian Ghenie’s dynamic work combines his personal memories with collective trauma, both past and present. Drawing upon the profoundly personal and the art historical, his works bridge the abstract and figurative and engage not only with the history of painting, but with ‘painting the texture of history’. Investigating the possibilities of his medium, Ghenie’s works fuse the grand themes and narratives of historical painting with contemporary forms, becoming less about their specific subject matter and more about the act of painting itself.
