Gagosian Beverly Hills is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Howard Hodgkin. This will be the artist’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles since 1985.
Completed within the last three years, these oil paintings reflect a shift in both scale and tone from Hodgkin’s earlier work. Among this grouping are the most monumental paintings created by the artist during his five-decade career. Hodgkin’s evocative art may be understood as a distillation of memories and emotions. In this recent body of work, he has introduced a more somber palette to suggest times past and lost friends. The details of the natural world, which function as objective correlatives of tender feelings, are recorded through an abstraction of visual language.
