Ansel Krut: Verbatim


Our spring show will be an exhibition of painting by Ansel Krut (b. 1959). The exhibition will bring together a series of largely unseen paintings by the London-based artist in what will be the largest exhibition and first survey show of Krut's work to date.

Krut's painting focuses around subverting still life by linking objects to create improbable, playful and often dark human forms. He ascribes much of the unsettling imagery in his paintings to growing up in Apartheid in South Africa. His grotesque and provocative inventions, drawing on paradoxes, vaudeville and peep show, are poised between absurdity and moral criticism. Krut's technique involves constructing his surface with layers of nuanced paint application in which there is a strong relationship to drawing and pictorial space.
