WOMEN - Art In Times of Chaos

de PURY Presents ‘WOMEN – Art In Times Of Chaos’ - a game changing virtual exhibition and live auction, presenting artworks by outstanding contemporary women artists.
Each artist was invited to participate by offering an artwork of their choice that has been created no earlier than 2019. In doing so, the exhibition spotlights and celebrates the work of women artists that have been created during the recent turbulent times.

Anton Corbijn

de PURY presented a special presentation of rarely seen, limited and final editions of photographs by the eminent Dutch artist.
Including portraits of notable figures such as Kate Moss, Virgil Abloh, Damien Hirst, Gerhard Richter, and Naomi Campbell to name a few.
Corbijn’s style of photography gives a raw edge to his subjects, capturing imperfection and personality by shooting with a slow shutter speed to capture gestures and movement in a unique way. Starting in the late 20th century, his style of producing black and white photos using grainy film became an important part of our visual culture, and is a technique that has been widely utilised since. 

Vanessa Beecroft

de PURY collaborated with Vanessa Beecroft to present an exclusive selection of her sculptures and paintings of females and nudes‘Vanessa Beecroft - Ceramics and Paintings 2016 – 2021’.
In this new body of works which interrogates the male gaze and societal pressures of being a woman, Vanessa Beecroft introduced classical sculpture and paintings as an extension of her performance and video art. 

Henry Hudson

Henry Hudson and de PURY presented a new series of portraits of leading art figures including a.o. Ed Ruscha, Sean Scully, Mary McCartney, and Ai Weiwei.
The works took contemporary portraiture into the digital realm. Capturing the sitters through photography and drawing their portrait on the iPad, the final work was then UV flatbed printed onto an array of materials.

'Ron Arad 69' was staged at Newlands House to coincide with the artist's 69th birthday in 2020.
