The solo show is “an exhibition of wrapped paintings” which re-interprets work by painter John Hoyland (1934-2011). Permission was not granted for the project, so the works remain in layers of cardboard to skirt around the issue of copyright.
Drawn to his series for their engagement with large-scale US paintings, the cardboard wrappings become monochromes and readymades, “complete with packing tape and transport labels” and will also require anyone who purchases one to keep it wrapped until the year 2081.
