Camden Art Centre presents the first major institutional exhibition in the UK by American artist Walter Price. The exhibition follows Price’s studio residency at Camden Art Centre in early 2020 when, in response to his time in London and the conditions of a new studio, he experimented with scale, narrative and material to create new paintings, works on paper and sculptural works. Price will present elements of this body of work, alongside a group of new paintings and works on paper made during lockdown in New York, in the forthcoming exhibition at Camden Art Centre.
Walter Price (b. 1989, Georgia, USA) lives and works in New York. His practice incorporates familiar forms and recurring motifs including palm trees, bathtubs, sofas and automobiles, which become a language of very personal symbols amid shifting horizon lines and bright fields of colour. Price’s painted and drawn compositions often blur the lines between collective history and individual memory, figuration and abstraction, depicting uncertain urban and domestic landscapes populated by the suggestion of people, objects, images and text.
