Alex Katz: Quick Light

Alex Katz: Quick Light | Add A LittleIf you didn’t know already, I adore the Serpentine Gallery. It’s a white cube gallery situated in Kensington Gardens and it’s the perfect place to get a quick culture break.

I’d never seen an exhibition of work by Alex Katz previously but I felt like this was the perfect introduction, highlighting some of his striking works.
I was pleasantly surprised with the collection they decided to display which showed his diverse subject matter, my favourite of which was the images of females.

I particularly enjoyed how the bright colours of the canvas, especially the orange, stood out against the white walls, making each piece seem iconic.

The exhibition also looks at other works which I didn’t know much about before coming to see them.  I enjoy how he uses dark colours, such as black and greys, and uses broad brushstrokes to create a dynamic and smoothly rendered image.

And if you’re going to see the exhibition, make sure to pop by this years Serpentine Pavilion. Its a wonderful sight of cubes placed into a pyramid composition.
