Gavin Turk: The Conspiracy of Blindness

Gavin Turk,Ben Brown Fine Arts

The exhibition will reveal a recent series of still-life paintings that pay homage to early 20th-century Italian artist Giorgio Morandi by Gavin Turk. In typical Turk style, he has subverted Morandi’s serene arrangements of vases and handmade vessels by replacing the models with quotidian product packaging.

The paintings in this anachronistic series are meticulously executed in a restricted tonal palette against a monochrome ground, some of the objects highlighted in accents of colour, inviting a close study of the rhythmically arranged lines and forms. The audience is encouraged to explore these curious juxtapositions as empty containers from used products are elevated to classical models while simultaneously reminding us of our consumer-driven culture.
