Loved the juxtaposition of Alexander Calder’s Little Black Flower, 1944 with Andy Warholl’s Flowers, 1964 which are on display @ordovasgallery until 28 July in an enchanting new exhibition: Flowers.
Calder’s mobile, composed of a red-painted metal and wire, with a small black flower, is on loan from a private collection and is the first time it has been shown in the UK since it was created.
Warhol’s Flowers series now amongst the artist’s most recognised motifs, was at the time a departure from his early 60s works - images of consumerism, celebrity, death and disasters - and were the subject of his first show with Leo Castelli in 1964.
Together with works by #lucianfreud #gerhardrichter #daviddawson #richardpettibone #wolfgangtillmans #robertmapplethorpe #louisfaurer and #weegee, this exhibition in its simplicity and thoughtful curation, like flowers, is a messenger of meaning.
Bravo @pilar.ordovas 🌷🌹💃💃
