John McLaughlin Paintings
A deep understanding of the relationship
between the individual and nature
A world of small things whose nature seems recognizable,
but at the same time strange or altered
Organizing an exhibition in a location like Palazzo, a place with a precise architecture, inorganic and cold from a certain point of view, is really interesting as it creates a sharp contrast to my work. My work is based on matter, rhetoric between me and the material; quite the opposite to the feeling one has when they get closer to the building.
Roots of the Future
The retrospective shows how playing with parody, representation and artifice the British artist has questioned the nature of picture and pictures-making challenging their conventions. The witty and brilliant invention of Hockney’s classic works is explored, including his portraits of family, friends and himself, as well as his iconic images of LA swimming pools. The exhibition will later tour to Paris and New York.
