New Representation

Ashley Bickerton

Gagosian is pleased to announce the gallery’s representation of Ashley Bickerton. The artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery is scheduled for 2023 at Gagosian New York.

Originally identified with the Neo-Geo tendency of the late-1980s scene in New York, Bickerton made his name with ironic, abstracted constructions focused on ideas of consumerism, identity, and value. When Bickerton relocated permanently to the Indonesian island of Bali in 1993, his work took a self-consciously “exotic” turn. Its tongue-in-cheek feel and ornate, crafted look contrast sharply with the conceptual detachment of his previous output, though a slippage between mediums, genres, and subjects remained. Over the past few years, Bickerton has brought his practice full circle, synthesizing its heterogeneous modes and gestures into an all-encompassing visual language.

New Representation

Anna Weyant

Gagosian is pleased to announce the gallery’s global representation of painter Anna Weyant. The artist will be the subject of a solo exhibition at the gallery in New York this fall. Weyant’s precisely rendered paintings depict figures embroiled in tragicomic narratives, and still-life compositions in which everyday objects adopt an uncanny, portentous air.
