Clive Head (b.  1965) Flee to Banbury Cross, 2017 Oil on canvas 57 x 49 inches

Clive Head: Zoetic-Realism, New Paintings, Drawings and Prints

Hollis Taggart Galleries
521 W 26th Street, 7th Floor
New York, New York

Clive Head is widely considered one of the leading realist painters of his generation. In the upcoming exhibition, Clive Head: Zoetic-Realism, Hollis Taggart Galleries will present a selection of works, on canvas and paper, to launch the artist's association with the gallery. This is the first solo exhibition to bring a substantial body of Head's recent work together - twenty-four paintings, drawings and etchings will be displayed in the exhibition.

This exhibition, aptly titled, bears witness to the way Head capture life around him. His highly complex compositions of human activities are zoetic and energized. Unlike past Photorealists, Head does not reveal a single moment frozen in time. Instead, with deft ability, he captures multiple perspectives with multiple concurrent timelines, moving through time and space. These fragmented urban depictions, most often with figures are in essence time-lapsed compilations. The compositions are highly engaging and immediately fascinate the observer. Time seems to come to a kaleidoscopic halt on his canvases and his subjects are masterfully rendered.Seen against Head's forerunners such as David Hockney and Lucian Freud, and of his contemporaries such as Peter Doig, it was clear that Head had established a unique position in the contemporary arena. In one of the show's highlights, Les Souvenirs du Cafe Anglais the artist characteristically fractures a scene from his familiar environment. The painting, which was previously shown in, REALITY: Modern and Contemporary British Painting, is simultaneously a study in motion and stillness, tantalizing the viewer.
