Thomas Ruff: d.o.pe.

David Zwirner is pleased to present new work by German artist Thomas Ruff (b. 1958), on view at the gallery’s 533 West 19th Street location in New York. The exhibition debuts Ruff’s d.o.pe. series, the title of which references Aldous Huxley’s autobiographical volume The Doors of Perception, published in 1954. Featuring fractal patterns the artist creates with a specialized software program that are printed onto industrial carpets, these works foreground Ruff’s ongoing pursuit of the visual expression of the beauty of mathematics and additionally call back to his own formative experiences as a teenager in the Black Forest. Further recalling the highly detailed and exuberant Northern Renaissance style of artists such as Hieronymus Bosch and Matthias Grünewald, d.o.pe. extends Ruff’s exploration of human perception and his interest in creating digital imagery that appears at once natural and artificial, ultimately foregrounding the pure pleasure of visuality and of looking. This is the artist’s twelfth exhibition with David Zwirner.
