Finally, a dedicated exhibition in which to surrender to the years of ineffable greatness that is Alex Katz. Tate St.Ives presents Give Me Tomorrow, a showcase from the octogenarian painter renowned for painting in economical lines and flattened swathes of edible colour. Not only displaying his own collages, canvases and cut-outs, but a curated selection of artists from the Tate’s own collections.
As highly relevant to artists working today as he ever was, Katz is a cross-generational artist. The unmistakable stylistic tone of his work lying in the brevity of features depicted in both portraiture and landscape, with a “cool but seductive emotional detachment” in keeping with mid-Twentieth Century advertising, pop art and in loose terms, early abstract impressionism.
Katz is an influencer so an opportunity to see scale and experience the imbuing quality of such an important artist is unmissable – the fallout of which will be renewing and righteous education of one of the greatest living painters!
Alex Katz: Give Me Tomorrow will be on show at the Tate St.Ives from May 19 to September 23.
