Christopher Bucklow: Said Now, For All Time

15 Sep 2017 - 13 Jan 2018

Christopher Bucklow is one of Britain’s leading contemporary artists. His work is held in many major international public and private collections including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Guggenheim and the Victoria & Albert Museum. This exhibition combines photographic works from the Guest series with paintings and drawings made over the last 10 years, and explores the connections between the two.

The Guests appeared in the mid-1990s, with the paintings following at the end of the decade. Thinking about their relationship, Bucklow initially assumed that the painted figures showed the destinies acted out by the Guests after they had descended into earthly bodies, incarnating from the celestial realm, into flesh and blood. However, after almost twenty years of painting, he discovered that many of the paintings tell the story of the time before the Guests. They tell of why the Guests came, where they came from, and what they are.
