Ashley Bickerton in New York at Lehmann Maupin

September 10, 2013 by Kay

September 11 – October 26, 2013 Lehmann Maupin, 201 Chrystie Street, New York

Lehmann Maupin is pleased to present Ashley Bickerton’s fourth solo show at the gallery, on view at 201 Chrystie Street from 11 September – 26 October 2013.

The artist will be present for an opening reception on Wednesday, 11 September from 6 to 8 PM.

From the beginning of his career, Bickerton has challenged traditional art forms, following the lineage of conceptualists who have considered the potential of readymade objects and images in visual culture. In the early 80’s, he embarked on what has become a career-long process of experimenting with the hybridization of forms, materials and methods that blur boundaries between painting, sculpture and photography and the artwork as commodity. He has often oscillated between abstraction and figuration, always with a conceptual base, and increasingly is exploring the differences between representation in western and non-western cultures. In his paintings from the last decade he has turned his attention more specifically to reimagining art historical genres including portraiture and landscape painting, while drawing inspiration from such artists as Willem de Kooning, Andy Warhol, and many others.
