Timothy Taylor, together with West Bund Group, is honoured to present the first large-scale exhibition of Alex Katz
in China. Now in his 89th
year, Katz is one of the most significant artists of his generation, with a far-reaching influence over many of today’s most successful artists. Determined to pioneer a style that set him apart from his contemporaries, Katz’s distinct minimal aesthetic is revealed in large-scale works that are both deeply intimate and also icons of a resolute style. Portraits of family and friends, still-lifes of flowers purchased from street vendors near his New York studio, and landscapes drawn from the artist’s personal experiences in urban and rural locations are characteristic of Katz’s flawless mastery of his medium. Painted from life and in single sessions, there is
an essential vitality and timelessness to Katz’s work. Timothy Taylor has represented Alex Katz in the UK since 2002.West Bund Art & Culture Pilot Zone
is located at:
