The British artist William Monk is known for creating art with mysterious and otherworldly forms. The artist returns to the news feed today, revealing a three-venue exhibition. Made in conjunction with GRIMM gallery, the artist reveals “The Ferryman.” The exhibition includes a series of large-scale paintings.
Monk spoke about the exhibit in a statement that reads: “Only after the work is complete do I become aware of specific past experiences that helped to inform it—perhaps in the same way that a dream picks up on certain conscious moments and twists them.” Pace and GRIMM will also publish a book on Monk that includes an essay by art historian and critic Suzanne Hudson.
There is also an interview with the artist conducted by poet John Yau. The exhibition, “The Ferryman,” will be on display at Pace’s 510 West 25th Street space and GRIMM’s 54 White Street gallery until June 11th. The East Hampton show will run from May 27th to June 5th.
