This event has ended.

David Zwirner presents an exhibition of new work by the Belgian-born, New York–based artist Harold Ancart at the gallery’s 525 & 533 West 19th Street locations in New York. This presentation marks the artist’s second solo show with David Zwirner following his 2018 debut at our London gallery.

On view in one gallery space will be a new series of paintings that depicts trees. These works were painted between Ancart’s Brooklyn studio and a makeshift outdoor studio in Los Angeles, which he traveled to during lockdown. Pointing to references as varied as René Magritte, Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, and Piet Mondrian, who approached this subject matter in distinct ways, Ancart’s tree paintings blur form and color, figure and ground, and figuration and abstraction.

In the adjoining gallery space, there will be two multipanel canvases that situate the viewer between a mountain-scape and a seascape, both monumental in scale.
