NEW WORK: Ian Davenport

26 May–14 August 2020

Waddington Custot launches NEW WORK, an online platform debuting painting and sculpture by leading contemporary artists working today.


NEW WORK: Ian Davenport, the first iteration of our digital solo exhibition series, is now open to explore online.


The exhibition includes four recent 'Puddle Paintings' by Davenport, which continue the artist's celebrated exploration of colour. Central to Davenport's practice is his choice of palette and unconventional methods in his application of paint. The colour combinations in this series directly reference paintings by French artist Pierre Bonnard. Davenport explores Bonnard's continually shifting colour palette, choreographing complex colour variations between yellow, grey, purple and blue.
