Keith Tyson
Drawings & Paintings

Tue – Sat, 10 am – 6 pm 3 Feb – 2 Apr 2022 New York, 22nd Street


For over 30 years, British Turner Prize-winning artist Keith Tyson has used a wide variety of methods and materials to explore the nature of our reality and art’s role in representing it. Opening 3 February, Hauser & Wirth New York will present two of Tyson’s extensive and ongoing series, with works spanning both ground floor galleries of the 22nd street location. The first room will include Tyson’s latest flower paintings. Each canvas is rendered using a different aesthetic style and approach, with Tyson allowing the paintings to emerge from varying mathematical, generative, and art-historical frameworks. By equating blossoming flowers with creative emergence, the series becomes a diverse reimaging of the enduring floral still life genre. The second room of the exhibition is devoted to five new large-scale arrangements from Tyson’s Studio Wall Drawing series, which the artist first began in 1997. Painted on identically sized sheets of paper then curated into large grid-like formations, these single works draw from a rich visual record of the passing of time and network of events, memories, and experiences that form both the artist’s personal inner world and our collective outer one. Together, as works made from many such moments, the work exists in a space somewhere between a sketchbook, a journal, a painting, and a poem.
