About

To celebrate his inclusion in the major exhibition 'Watercolour' at Tate Britain (16 February - 21 August 2011), Haunch of Venison is pleased to present a solo show focusing on new and recent paintings by Swiss artist Uwe Wittwer (b. 1954). The exhibition, displayed in the gallery's Mezzanine space, carries on Wittwer's artistic research on the authenticity and truth of images and the role of the artist as image hunter and voyeur. Picking up recurrent motifs in the artist's oeuvre like Interior scenes, references to Old Flemish and Spanish Masters still lifes from the 17th and 18th century, and historical everyday life in Eastern Prussia, the works once more evoke a feeling of unease and gloominess which shimmers through their apparent exquisiteness and tranquility.
