New Gregory Crewdson work to be shown in New York



2016-01-28 16:06:07

An exhibition of new work by Gregory Crewdson will take place at the Gagosian Gallery in New York.

Titled Cathedral of the Pines, the show features work produced in rural Massachusetts between 2013 and 2014.

It’s the first body of work Crewdson has produced for around five years.  

He explained: “It was deep in the forests of Becket, Massachusetts that I finally felt darkness lift, experienced a reconnection with my artistic process, and moved into a period of renewal and intense creative productivity.”

Crewdson produces large format photographs, carefully staged photographs that appear as scenes from movies.

This new collection covers similar ground, depicting isolated figures in cryptic and unsettling contexts.

As Alexander Nemerov, art history professor at Stanford, writes in an essay accompanying the photographs: "all that ever happened in these places seems crystallized in his tableaux, as if the quiet melancholy of Crewdson’s scenes gathered the unruly sorrows and other little-guessed feelings of people long gone who once stood on those spots."

The show is available to view between January 28 and March 5.
