“Head Gas” is the first New York exhibition by Italian-born, Berlin-based artist Enrico David. Over the past twenty years, David has produced a body of work encompassing painting, drawing, sculpture, and collage that draws upon a rich variety of sources and expresses a range of complex emotional states. Although his work is highly celebrated throughout Europe—the artist was among the nominees for the 2009 Turner Prize, for example—David’s work has rarely been exhibited in the United States. The New Yorker describes one of the drawings as, “a tornado of lines converg[ing] into a figure so regal yet ethereal you may find yourself thinking of Klimt.” Through April 22.
