Josh Sperling Goes "Big Time" for Perrotin New York ExhibitionNew swirling forms on sprawling shaped canvasses.
Josh Sperling‘s affinity for geometric forms is now heightened for a forthcoming exhibition entitled “Big Time” at Perrotin New York. The contemporary artist will showcase a vivid range of swirling forms on shaped canvasses. Calling them “Composites,” these three-dimensional pieces merge the practices of painting and sculpture-making coupled with Sperling’s astute perception of architectural spaces.
In regards to the sculptural paintings, the gallery expressed that each piece “begins with a meticulously crafted armature—feats of carpentry—over which canvas is stretched. The effect is not that of obscuring this engineering, but of highlighting, through color when it is later applied, the sculptural skeleton underneath.”
View select works above and head over to Perrotin New York for more information. “Big Time” is set to launch January 12 until February 17, 2019. Elsewhere in art, take a look inside André Saraiva & Futura’s “Chez Nous” exhibition in Paris.
