British artist Hurvin Anderson (born 1965), is best known for evocative paintings that engage with charged social histories and shifting notions of cultural identity. His depictions of lush Caribbean landscapes and urban barbershops explore themes of memory and place, and the indelible connection between the two. Anderson applies paint with deceptive ease, as if eager to capture the scene before it drifts away; figure and ground blend to create compositional spaces where subjects fluidly project forward and recede back into permeable picture planes. The most comprehensive survey of Anderson's work to date, Backdrop examines the artist's practice in depth, presenting new and recent paintings alongside previously unseen sculpture and photography.
