Ian Davenport

1 Oct — 29 Oct 2011

Waddington Custot Galleries is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings by Ian Davenport from 2010 and 2011. In these recent Puddle Paintings, Davenport continues to use a large syringe to pour acrylic paint down aluminium or stainless steel panels, a process which enables him to explore diverse colour compositions. Davenport said; ‘using a syringe enables me to control the paint flow to such a degree that my focus is almost completely devoted to the colour sequences in a work’ . The ‘puddling’ at the base of each painting is created by bending the base of each panel, causing the lines to merge and overlap.
