ABOUT THE WORK
(meaning sketches in Spanish) is a series of 50
drawings by Oliver Clegg that he created in Costa Rica during the first few months of quarantine earlier this year. What began for Clegg as a three month trip suddenly shifted into a seemingly endless stretch of life in the jungle. With limited space and resources, he launched into this series of drawings which reveal the multitude of oscillating thoughts, feelings, anxieties, and epiphanies catalyzed through our global crisis. Akin to Euclid's Porsche
, his series of 150 oil paintings featuring Happy Meal toys presented with Rental Gallery in 2018, this body of work is intended to be considered as such, reflecting on how 50 disparate images can create the cultural, experiential, haunting whole.
Oliver Clegg has held solo exhibitions at Journal Gallery (Brooklyn), Rental Gallery (East Hampton), Lawrie Shabibi Gallery (Dubai), and Erin Cluley Gallery (Dallas) among others.
Group exhibitions include Good Pictures curated by Austin Lee this September at Jeffrey Deitch (New York), More or Less curated by Darren Bader at Sadie Coles HQ (London), Animals at Charles Riva Collection (Belgium), Gotika at the 56th Venice Biennale,
Re:define curated by Neville Wakefield at Goss-Michael Foundation (Dallas), Some Domestic Incidents at the 2011 Prague Biennale and many others. Clegg lives and works in New York.
