Léon Wuidar

7 Sep-8 Oct 2022


White Cube is pleased to announce an exhibition of work by Léon Wuidar. Born in 1938 in Liège, Belgium, Wuidar has explored geometric abstraction for over 60 years, citing the ruined bridges, stark military and Brutalist architecture from his childhood, and synthesising these structural vocabularies with the concerns of Concrete Art. Predicated on a series of dualities between symmetry and asymmetry, hard-edged and soft-edged shapes, and bold and neutral colours, Wuidar’s paintings play on the harmony and formal precision of the built world. Through a process of overlaying and interlocking, his compositions evoke multiple depths and perspectives, as if the viewer is looking through overlapping architectural structures towards a distant point.
