Avigdor Arikha – Paintings and Works on Paper, Marlborough Fine Art, 6 Albemarle Street, London W1, until 17thOctober 2015
This interesting show traces Arikha’s artistic career from the mid-60s to his death in 2010. He started drawing when in a concentration camp during the last war and started out as an abstract artist but a meeting with Giacometti led him to change direction. As well as his distinctive figural works there is also a selection of charming still-life pictures.
Lee Ufan – From Point, From Line, From Wind, Pace London, 6 Burlington Gardens, London W1, until 24th October, 2015
Downstairs at Pace is this exhibition by the Korean-born artist Lee Ufan. The artist says of his memorable abstract works “Space means the infinite….Buddhism teaches that being is possible only because there is also nothingness, and appearance coexists with disappearance.”
Brent Wadden – How Long is Now, until 31st October 2015
These striking paintings are created from woven geometric patterns which are then stretched over canvas. The resulting works reflect Bauhaus, First nation and Folk textiles.
David Hockney, Early Drawings, Offer Waterman, 17 St George Street, London W1, until 23rd October 2015.
I think many of you will agree that this is a most agreeable way for Offer Waterman to open their new Mayfair gallery with a display of more than fifty of these early Hockney drawings which will then go on to be shown at New York’s Paul Kasmin Gallery. Some of the works are on loan while others are for sale.
