白立方欣然呈現美國戰後最重要的畫家之一 —— 阿爾•赫爾德(1928 − 2005) 首次香港個展。展出作品勾勒了赫爾德近50年的藝術生涯,並重點關注其創作的現代主義根源及對抽象繪畫的持續探索。
White Cube is pleased to present an exhibition of works by American painter Al Held (1928−2005). This is Held’s first solo exhibition with the gallery and his first in Asia.
A pioneer of hard-edged abstraction, Al Held created works of great complexity during his 50-year career. Split over two levels, the exhibition begins by tracing the development of Held’s oeuvre through works on paper and small-scale paintings from the 1950s to the 1980s. It culminates with a room dedicated to his quest to expand the language of abstraction, featuring a number of major paintings from his ‘Luminous Construct’ series: powerful, colourful, hard-edged geometric works inspired by the perspective and illusionism of Renaissance painting.
John Good, Director of Artists Estates, White Cube said: ‘Throughout his life, Al Held relentlessly pursued a goal to test the limits of abstract painting. At White Cube Hong Kong, we are presenting a detailed visual narrative of these developments that begins with Held’s roots in Modernist Abstraction and concludes with his transformation into a post-Modern rascal who turned away from Modernist traditions.’
