White Cube Mason’s Yard is pleased to present an exhibition of new and recent works by Jeff Wall, a number of which strike out in new directions for the artist.

About

Recovery (2017-18) depicts a seaside park on a bright summer afternoon. It appears to be a photograph of a painting executed in a flat decorative style, featuring bright colours and minimal detail while retaining the concreteness of a specific moment in time. In the foreground a seated figure, partly photographic and partly painted, gazes out of the picture. Could it be that this image is of a blissful, fleeting vision occasioned by the young man’s recovery from some, happily short-lived, misfortune? Recovery recalls Wall’s earlier forays into the hallucinatory, including Dead Troops Talk (1992) and The Flooded Grave (2000).
