Henry Curchod’s latest body of work confirms his return to the figure. Set in a reflexive tone, the series depicts a rumination on idolatry.
Clive James’ ode to the Argentinian tennis player 'Bring me the sweat of Gabriela Sabatini', inspired a re-imagining of James' wordplay; as Curchod transcribes his narrative with quixotic symbolism. The artist's ongoing exploration of painterly techniques has allowed him to venture into the extended field of drawing; as he incorporates painting and sculpture.
