Black Paintings by Alex Katz – an exhibition of new large-scale paintings at the Timothy Taylor Gallery, Mayfair. Katz’s paintings are at once figurative and abstract – his larger-than-life portraits and landscapes often looming large over their observers. However, in these new works, rather than filling each frame, the subjects are assigned to the margins with black space occupying most of each canvas. Katz has been the subject of over 200 solo exhibitions and nearly 500 group shows internationally since 1951, and has been honoured with numerous retrospectives including The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, USA; Tate St. Ives, UK; Turner Contemporary, Margate, UK; and The Guggenheim, Bilbao, Spain.
