Timothy Taylor is pleased to present an exhibition of drawings, new large-scale paintings, studies on board and sculpture by Alex Katz. This is the artist’s eighth exhibition with the gallery and the first solo presentation in London since his retrospective at the Serpentine Gallery in the summer of 2016.
The exhibition brings together a selection of the 1940's ‘Subway Drawings'- which have travelled to London after being exhibited at Timothy Taylor, New York earlier this year. These drawings were executed by Katz during his time as an art student at Cooper Union, when he used his time in transit on the subway to study individual figures and groups, developing his signature clarity of line. Drawing continues to serve as a crucial facet in Katz's practice – a tool of immediacy that articulates his most essential images, in his pursuit to capture the present tense, or "quick light" as he calls it.
