Painting has always seemed torn between an inward and an outward gaze: between vision and perception, between our dreams and the concrete, highly politicized conditions framing our comprehension of the world and what it might become. Today is no dierent. After a period in which the medium has been dominated by process-based abstraction, the gure – and representation with it – is ascendant again. But, if the 1990s and 2000s saw artists such as John Currin distorting classical form while others, following Gerhard Richter, mimicked photography, today’s figuration displays a distinctly different character. Gone, for the most part, are the echoes of old masters; gone, too, are the blurs of photorealism. What takes their place, instead, is a highly idiosyncratic approach ltered through pronounced aect, comic-book and sci- aesthetics, dreamy narratives and an eagerness to engage with our political moment without forfeiting the sensuousness of the medium.

David Geers (Sotheby’s)

This third edition of Conceptions it is dedicate completely to the femenine body. it is a searching of de idealic beauty, an unattainable beauty which has been followed all the time. His waste of nuances is in the inexhaustible forms of his anatomy. And in all endless gazes with which it can give us away.
