Opening Reception - David Hepher: Concrete Elegy

20 October, 6:00 – 8:00pm

Join us for the opening of a new exhibition by British artist David Hepher, the artist’s first solo presentation in the United States. For forty years David Hepher has focused his singular vision on the domestic high-rises of South London, through which he has channelled the diverse currents that have swept the international world of contemporary art. Finding his subject in the expansive social housing estates built throughout the 1960s and 70s, Hepher has captured the formal beauty of their grid-like structures as well as the physical and emotional traces of their inhabitants.

“I was drawn to painting tower blocks not because I had any personal message to say, but because I felt that it was a striking element of the landscape. It’s like Constable had the Stour Valley and Turner had the Medway, and I have Camberwell. This is what landscape painters do – they keep going back to familiar subjects and views and finding new inspiration in them. Cézanne used to say that he could always paint the Mont Saint Victoire. By moving his feet a few inches, he would find a new view. By changing his position, only slightly, he would find another painting.” - David Hepher
