Frieze London, Stand A18, Regent's Park
These works depict figures engaged in ritualized movement. Titus tenderly captures the visual language of leisure and sport, which he considers a close relative of more sacred forms of choreography. Our eyes are drawn to the muscles in a diver’s back or the intimate posture of a jockey. We meet the gaze of a woman descending subway stairs at dusk, evoking a sense of stillness and promise with intense concentration.
Employing flat planes of rich colour, Titus’s work recalls the French nineteenth-century group Les Nabis and the Chicago Imagists, as well as the Eastern Seaboard pastoralia of Fairfield Porter. Blending history with dreamscape, the paintings reveal a fantastical early-20th-century world in a visual style uniquely Titus’s own.
