Alan Charlton / Three Greys

One of the most accomplished multiples by Alan Charlton


Alan Charlton is a contemporary British artist best known for his Minimalist paintings and installations. Uniformly painted gray, his conceptual works are frequently composed of simple geometric forms, such as a single triangle or rectangle broken into modular elements. “I want my paintings to be: abstract, direct, urban, basic, modest, pure, simple, silent, honest, absolute,” Charlton has said of his practice. Born in 1948 in Sheffield, England, the artist studied at the Camberwell School of Art in London from 1966–1969. Charlton's work has been gaining recognition since the 1970s, and has been exhibited at institutions such as the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Castello di Rivoli in Torino, and the Tate in London. He lives and works in London, England.

An exceptional art edition :

With "Three Greys", Alan Charlton gives here without doubt one of his most accomplished multiples. Rare in the practice of the artist, he makes a multiple every 5 years or so. For "Three Greys" Alan Charlton started from his practice of installation models that he makes before any presentation of these works. He comes here on 3 large panels (format 90 x 50 cm) to fix 3 squares of canvases in different greys, previously screen-printed, in a precise order, alternating from one panel to another. This large triptych is assembled in a natural canvas box of a precise height of 4.5 cm, taking up the format of his canvases. This multiple is published in 20 copies.
