The Shape of Things to Come II
Oil on canvas
The Shape of Things to Come II was awarded the US Toyota Woordfees prize for best visual arts exhibition
The new phase introduces out-of-place-objects into painted out-of-place landscapes: sometimes the landscape is completely eliminated to make way for expressions of pure form and colour. This series of works is a celebration rather than a statement of the fact that there is ‘nothing new’ to be made art- wise. Well known artworks titles' are appropriated for the new paintings, giving the exhibition a certain ‘back to school’ flavour.
