Ben Brown Fine Arts presents Kerze, their fourth solo exhibition of British artist Gavin Turk. The exhibition will unveil a new series of paintings, meticulously rendered still lifes of candles based on Gerhard Richter’s renowned photorealist paintings, though, in typical Turk fashion, the recognizable imagery is subverted by presenting the candles as recently extinguished, their curls of smoke trailing up the canvas.
Over the last three decades, Turk has relentlessly challenged notions of value, authorship, and identity in his work, often by boldly referencing the work of modern masters and infusing it with his own identity and hand as an artist. His work is at once provocative, disruptive, humorous, mischievous, and erudite, earning him the distinction as one of the most interesting and notorious contemporary British artists today.
