Close: Drawn Portraits

Close: Drawn Portraits
Drawing Room London

A group exhibition featuring portraits by Clifton Wright

22 November 2018 – 3 February 2019

Mounira Al Solh, Frank Auerbach, Paul Cézanne, Virginia Chihota, Lucian Freud, Dryden Goodwin, Barbara Hepworth, David Hockney, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Horst Janssen, Claudette Johnson, Michael Landy, Maria Lassnig, Joyce Pensato, Deanna Petherbridge, Francis Picabia, Pablo Picasso, Paula Rego, Nicola Tyson, Jessica Voorsanger and Clifton Wright.

Bringing together historic figures such as Ingres, Picasso and Hepworth, and recent and contemporary artists including Lassnig, Hockney and Landy, this exhibition reveals intimate encounters between artists and their subjects over the past 200 years. Remarkable drawn portraits, rarely seen, sit beside those made today, and demonstrate drawing’s enduring ability to bring characters to life.

‘…exploring the relationship between the head and the space around it, at times blurring the distinction between them. Whilst exploiting this confusion Wright has used careful compositional decisions and colour variations to produce a sense of compression such that his acutely observed head is propelled forward and almost transgresses the boundaries of the page.’ (KM)
