Slewe Gallery is pleased to present new works on paper by British artist Ian Davenport. The exhibition opens Saturday January 13 and will run until February 24.
For his fourth exhibition at Slewe Gallery, Davenport will show a new series of large colour etchings on paper, which he made in collaboration with Alan Cristea Gallery in London. They consist of both mono prints and editions of his famous poured images. Highlights include the monumental Poured Triptych Etching Ambassadors (After Holbein) of 177 x 255 cm, his largest print to date, of which the colours are abstract interpretations of the colours used in Holbein’s famous painting The Ambassadors, on display at the National Gallery in London, and a new series of silk screen prints featuring a new addition, coloured ‘splats’ of paint, to his process. These prints are accompanied by some recently made unique drawings, entitled Staggered Lines.
