Daniel Crews-Chubb Joins Timothy Taylor

22 November 2020

Timothy Taylor is delighted to announce the representation of British artist Daniel Crews-Chubb. The gallery presented Crews-Chubb’s first solo exhibition in New York at Timothy Taylor, New York in February of this year, followed by a solo presentation with the gallery at Frieze Online in May. Both presentations sold out, and included promised gifts to major museums. Timothy Taylor will present a solo exhibition of Crews-Chubbs’ new paintings at the London gallery in autumn 2021. His first institutional installation will open in 2021 at Wellington Arch, London, in collaboration with English Heritage and Vigo Gallery.

He is known for his exuberant, collage-based works, which deconstruct symbols, archetypes and motifs taken from over a millennium of Western and Eastern painting, craft and sculpture. Visually echoing the labyrinthine accretions of art history, Crews-Chubb creates complex, hand-painted surfaces of canvas and fabric encrusted with layers of heavy impasto, charcoal drawing and graffiti. He is based in London.

‘Daniel Crews-Chubb is an artist who is advancing the state of painting today. His paintings fuse ancient and new iconography with a radical attack on the canvas, fostering a whole new language of spatial understanding and recognition,’ says Timothy Taylor. ‘We are delighted to be able to share his new paintings in a solo show taking place at the London gallery next year.’

Daniel Crews-Chubb was born in Northampton, England in 1984. He studied at Turps Art School, London and Chelsea College of Arts, London. Using an innovative collage technique to deconstruct the methods and symbols of classical painting, Daniel Crews-Chubb mines the legacies of Ar Brut, Arte Povera and Abstract Expressionism in his practice. The artist has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Timothy Taylor, New York (2020); Roberts Projects, Los Angeles (2018); Vigo Gallery, London (2016); and Galerist, Istanbul (2014).

Crews-Chubb is currently participating in the group exhibitions 45 at 45, L.A. Louver, Los Angeles and Synchronicity, Roberts Projects, Los Angeles.

His works are represented in international public and private collections including the Denver Art Museum, Colorado; The Long Museum, Shanghai; Saatchi Gallery, London; The Bunker Artspace and Beth Rudin de Woody Collections, Palm Beach and New York; and the Hall Ar Foundation, New York.

We look forward to collaborating with Crews-Chubb's other galleries in Europe and the U.S., Vigo Gallery and Roberts Projects.
