Martin Creed

Step Paintings

11 February – 10 April 2023

St. Moritz

Hauser & Wirth St. Moritz presents ‘Step Paintings’ by Martin Creed, Turner Prize-winning artist, performer, composer and ‘Punk poet.’

About the exhibition

The exhibition brings together a selection of Creed’s Step Paintings from the past twelve years, alongside four neon works.

‘Colors can help you feel better. Paintings are the arrangement of colors for pleasure.’—Martin Creed

In Creed’s Step Paintings, colors build up like a staircase to heaven, like a wedding cake, like favorite socks in a drawer, like a house on an island in the middle of the sea.

Creed has become known for hugely varied work, which is by turns uncompromising, entertaining, shocking and beautiful.

On view in St. Moritz

‘Martin Creed. Step Paintings’ is on view now through 10 April 2023 at Hauser & Wirth St. Moritz.
