An exhibition of work by Wayne Thiebaud. One of America’s foremost painters, Thiebaud’s career spans seventy years. This exhibition is his first comprehensive solo presentation in London and includes a selection of paintings and works on paper that date from 1962 to 2017.
Thiebaud deals with a uniquely American vernacular in his paintings of everyday food, urban and rural landscapes and people. Often modest in scale, his subject matter is isolated and reduced, becoming the focus for painterly exercises in colour, volume and style. In the artist’s most well-known images of cakes, pastries and pies, begun around 1953, a heightened tactility and viscosity of paint is analogous to the actual objects depicted, a technique he has called ‘object transference’.
