Matthew Marks is pleased to announce Rebecca Warren: V, the next exhibition in his gallery. It consists of eleven sculptures in hand-painted bronze, including slender totemic sculptures and smaller, more intimate works on pedestals, all of which are being shown for the first time.
Warren has said of these new works, “I wanted them to be somehow denser than previous bronzes in order to integrate them more completely with their painted surfaces, making them more concentrated, more intense.” Many of the sculptures are painted with shapes and symbols that, as Warren suggests, “might stand as an obscure ancient or alien language. Together they might form either a series of separate impenetrable fragments or one single message or communication of some sort.”
Rebecca Warren (b. 1965) was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2006 and the Vincent Award in 2008. She has had one-person exhibitions at numerous museums, most recently the Musée National Eugène Delacroix in France (2018), Tate St. Ives in England (2017), Fondation Vincent van Gogh in France (2017), and the Dallas Museum of Art (2016). Her work was included in the 54th Venice Biennale (2011) and is in the permanent collections of museums across Europe and the United States. She lives and works in London.
