Marlborough is pleased to announce the opening of a group exhibition featuring the work of Ahmed Alsoudani, Francis Bacon, Philip Guston and Paula Rego.
This exhibition brings together paintings of three world-renowned artists: Francis Bacon, Philip Guston and Paula Rego, as well as recent paintings by the New York based artist Ahmed Alsoudani. Each of these artists confronts issues of violence and power, shifting between personal, political and historical events while maintaining a dialogue with the tradition of figurative painting. Bacon’s visceral approach to reality, Rego’s often menacing, Boschian stories and folk tales, and Guston’s singular and liberating figurative works of the 1970s are all reflected in the tumult and dynamism of Alsoudani’s work. Alsoudani’s synthesis of these influences lead to his signature conglomerations of symbolic form and figure.
