Timothy Taylor will present new paintings by British artist Daniel Crews-Chubb (b. Northampton, 1984) for Frieze New York 2020. Crews-Chubbs’ work engages with questions of materiality and mythology, translating the symbols and archetypes history into rich texture through the dense layering and heavy impasto of his hand-painted surfaces.

This presentation follows Crews-Chubb's first solo exhibition at Timothy Taylor New York in January 2020, and focuses on the artist’s ongoing Flowers series, which reinterprets the traditional still life. In the largest painting from the series, Crews-Chubb uses his signature experimental collage style to deconstruct Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers. The works relate to Crews-Chubb’s ongoing investigation of ancient and new visual iconography, which has seen him blend the painterly language of Abstract Expressionism, Neo-Expressionism and CoBra with a vast array of symbols and images taken from sources as diverse as Greco-Roman deities, medieval gargoyle carvings and early English alphabet designs.
