Cristea Roberts Gallery is pleased to announce a major survey of Tom Wesselmann’s (1931-2004) graphic oeuvre, exploring the rich and diverse editions the leading American Pop artist made over the course of his career.
Fifty works on show, dating from 1963 to 1998, made in an astonishing variety of media from silkscreen to cut metal and collage, include Wesselmann’s iconic and often provocative depictions of the nude, as well as his many still lifes and occasional landscapes. These rarely exhibited works, which come directly from the Tom Wesselmann Estate, will be on show from 29 April – 1 June 2022.
Synthesis and Tension demonstrates Wesselmann’s constant desire to push the boundaries of what a chosen medium could offer, particularly in his later use of cut metal. As his chosen subject matter came to be executed across a range of different media, he also pushed the iconography to new limits.
Cristea Roberts Gallery is the exclusive worldwide representative for the prints and metal cut-out editions from the Tom Wesselmann Estate.
