An increasingly prominent voice among a new generation of figurative painters, New York-based artist Doron Langberg has gained a reputation for works that, luminous in colour and often large in scale, hinge on a sense of intimacy. Depicting himself, his family, friends, and lovers, Langberg's paintings celebrate the physicality of touch—in subject matter and process—a closeness that engages with new dialogues around queer sensuality and sexuality. For his first exhibition with the gallery, Langberg will show near-abstract large-scale depictions that give material form to moments of desire, alongside paintings which are drawn from a group of works made while visiting his home in Yokneam, Israel, after many months of being away. While there, he painted his family, close friends, spring wildflowers, and for the first time—pure landscapes. These large panoramic works will be shown alongside the chromatic depictions of figures in interiors for which he has become known.
