Mid-Late C20th - Painting
Tue-Sat: 10-6pm; Sun: 12-6pm
White Cube is pleased to present an exhibition of paintings by Léon Wuidar at Mason’s Yard, London. Featuring works from the early 1960s up to the mid-1980s, the selection traces Wuidar’s evolution in geometric abstraction across a defining period of his career.
Often citing childhood memories of a post-war Belgium in ruins as a key influence, as well as his friendship with the late architect Charles Vandenhove, Wuidar’s painting is deeply rooted in the vocabulary of architecture. Wuidar met Vandenhove in the 1960s, and still lives and works in the Brutalist house and studio in Esneux, near Liège, which the architect designed. ‘A house is an assembly of geometric shapes, so Vandenhove and I have a common vocabulary,’ the artist has said.
