Harold Ancart, Untitled, 2020
Harold Ancart: Traveling Light
David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by the Belgian-born, New York–based artist Harold Ancart at the gallery’s 525 & 533 West 19th Street locations in New York. This presentation marks the artist’s second solo show with David Zwirner following his 2018 debut at our London gallery.
On view in one gallery space will be a new series of paintings that depicts trees. These works were painted between Ancart’s Brooklyn studio and a makeshift outdoor studio in Los Angeles, which he traveled to during lockdown. Pointing to references as varied as René Magritte, Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, and Piet Mondrian, who approached this subject matter in distinct ways, Ancart’s tree paintings blur form and color, figure and ground, and figuration and abstraction.
In the adjoining gallery space, there will be two multipanel canvases that situate the viewer between a mountain-scape and a seascape, both monumental in scale.
In an effort to support Galleries Commit and a climate-conscious future, the carbon footprint of this exhibition was calculated with the assistance of Atelier Ten and offset through a vendor that invests in reforestation, forest conservation, and sustainable forest management. This fully offsets the 31.54 tons of carbon produced by the exhibition. To learn more, please click here.
The galleries are open to the public with a limited number of visitors allowed into the exhibition spaces at a time, in accordance with city guidelines.
