Major new body of prints by YBA and graduate of Goldsmiths College of Art, Ian Davenport.

About

This summer the Alan Cristea Gallery, will unveil a major new body of etchings and monoprints by Ian Davenport (b.1966), YBA and graduate of Goldsmiths College of Art, London. Davenport, who is driven by an enduring fascination with the materiality and process of painting and printmaking, has made a series of monumental triptychs, his largest prints to date, inspired by the colour compositions of historical paintings by Hans Holbein, Gustav Klimt, and Vincent van Gogh. These works will be shown alongside further etchings and a series of splatter screenprints, a departure from Davenport’s signature technique of vertical lines cascading down into rich puddles of colour.
