Throughout a career touching eight decades – from the 1950s to the present day – Frank Bowling has obsessively inquired into the materiality of paint.
Focusing on a selection of eight monumental works made in his London studio during and after 2020, ‘Frank Bowling: Penumbral Light’ offers new insight into the 88-year-old artist’s practice. and grants access into a vibrant creative world made of water, colour, transparency, surface, movement, and light.
Features texts by Arnolfini Bristol curator Gemma Brace and Ben Bowling, the artist’s son.
Accompanies the exhibition of the same name, 10 Jun – 20 Aug 2022, Hauser & Wirth, Zurich. The artist’s first solo exhibition in Switzerland, coinciding with Zurich Art Weekend.
