Pace Gallery is pleased to present Adam Pendleton: In Abstraction. The artist’s first solo exhibition in Geneva, it features eight new paintings and four new drawings, and it is presented concurrently with Adam Pendleton: Toy Soldier at Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Zurich. Together these two exhibitions speak to the range of his practice.
“How do you make sense, on an emotional, intellectual, and pragmatic level, of the visual residue one leaves behind?”, Pendleton asks. Adam Pendleton: In Abstraction captures a microhistory of marks and impressions: drips, splatters, strokes, erasures, shapes, word fragments. These are the accumulated remnants left over from work undertaken in his painting studio, remnants that have been composited to create richly textured visual fields.
