Waddington Custot

Waddington Custot London-based art gallery, founded in 1966, specialising in modern and contemporary works of art

Waddington Custot was formed through the partnership of long-time London art dealer, Leslie Waddington, and French art dealer Stephane Custot in 2011. Located in Cork Street since 1958, formerly as Waddington Galleries, the gallery has a rich heritage and an international reputation for quality and expertise. From the late 50s, exhibited artists included those coming out of St Ives, Patrick Heron,

Terry Frost and Roger Hilton, and a new generation of British painters and sculptors, Peter Blake and Patrick Caulfield, Elisabeth Frink, Anthony Caro and William Turnbull. The gallery would become instrumental in the promotion of post-war American art in England, showing the influential work of Milton Avery in 1962, Abstract Expressionists and the emergent Color Field painting of Morris Louis, Kenneth Noland, and Helen Frankenthaler. In the early 70s, contemporary shows became interspersed with the work of European and British masters, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Fernand Léger, Jean Dubuffet and Ben Nicholson. New European and American painters and sculptors were introduced in the 80s, including Barry Flanagan and Michael Craig-Martin, Julian Schnabel, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd and Robert Rauschenberg, and in the 90s, young British artists, Ian Davenport and Fiona Rae. Waddington Custot represents contemporary British artists Peter Blake and Ian Davenport and French painter Fabienne Verdier, the Estates of Patrick Caulfield, Barry Flanagan and Patrick Heron. The inventory includes works by modern British masters, Henry Moore and Ben Nicholson, and important twentieth-century European artists, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Jean Dubuffet, Josef Albers, Fausto Melotti, and Antoni Tàpies. The long-standing focus on American artists continues with representation of Robert Indiana and works by John Chamberlain, Peter Halley, Robert Rauschenberg, Haim Steinbach, Frank Stella and John Wesley.

Three major sculptures by Sophia Vari have been installed on the Smithson Plaza and will be on show until the end of the year. ⁠
-⁠
'Le Roi' et 'La Reine' (2000) presents two figures abstracted from the game of chess. Black and white are usually representative of opponent forces on the chessboard, and Vari’s decision to combine the two in each piece creates a sense of unity and co-dependence. ⁠
-⁠
'Trouble Essentiel' (1993) a compact composition containing a vibrant energy, nods to Olmec artistic traditions, one of a multiplicity of influences which informs Vari’s rich and timeless sculpture.

17/03/2022

Richard Estes is considered by many to be the standard-bearer of photorealist painting and its most devoted and accomplished practitioner. His work features many reflective surfaces - shop windows, shiny cars - which yield mirrored imagery and raises questions about perception. He also stays true to the photographs he used: when his paintings include stickers, signs, and window displays, they are always depicted backwards because of the reflection. ⁠
-⁠
By doing this he questions the acceptance that a photograph is a true representation of reality: everything is sifted through the mechanics of the camera and the eye that operates it. By translating the photograph into a painting, the photorealist also addresses the central question of modernism - what is unique to the medium of painting itself? ⁠

This work, Robert Rauschenberg’s ‘Klaxon Pisa Glut’ (1988) stands in the centre of the gallery as part of our DRIVE exhibition, which runs until 5 April 2022. ⁠

Rauschenberg began the ‘Glut’ series in 1986 after a visit to Houston, Texas. At the time, the state was in the throes of a recession due to a glut in the oil market. Rauschenberg took note of the devastation of the region as he collected gas-station signs and deteriorated automotive and industrial parts littering the landscape. Upon his return to his Florida studio, he transformed the scrap-metal detritus into wall reliefs and freestanding sculptures.⁠

Asked to comment on the meaning of Gluts, Rauschenberg said, “It’s a time of glut. Greed is rampant. I’m just exposing it, trying to wake people up. I simply want to present people with their ruins . . . I think of the Gluts as souvenirs without nostalgia. What they are really meant to do is give people an experience of looking at everything in terms of what its many possibilities might be.” ⁠

Have you seen our DRIVE exhibition yet? One of the artist’s featured in the show is John Baeder, an American Photorealist painter known for his depictions of roadside diners.

Baeder’s work aimed to chronicle the disappearing vernacular architecture of small-town America and appears in the collections of a number of major American museums such as the , and Detroit Institute of Arts (), among many others. If you look closely, Baeder has inscribed his name in the window to the left of the door. ⁠

We are very sad to hear of the passing of John “Jack” Wesley, who died yesterday morning aged 93.
-
Waddington Custot Gallery has had the pleasure of holding three exhibitions of Wesley’s work over the last 20 years and has lent a number of paintings to shows including Fondazione Prada in 2009.
-
This work here at the gallery is typical of his practice: varying tones of pastel blue and pink, strongly supported by black and white, which also provides the key compositional frameworks of the black contour line that describes the forms. The subjects often overlap the painted borders of his works and line up in repetitive formations. “Repetition makes things funny,” he once said.
-
Wesley’s earliest paintings were of stamps and badges, from where he introduced the compositional device of a painted border. Despite his flat ‘cartoon’ style, and the fact he often exhibited as a Pop artist, Wesley’s intentions were closer to those of surrealism. Frozen, dreamlike scenes take precedence over mass consumption and the contemporary world. His imaginings of the female n**e were both erotic and comic, resulting in images simultaneously ‘explicit and cryptic’.

'...anyone can make a mark’. — Paul Feeley.

In October 1959, penned his twenty-point Art Policy for Bennington College, in which he took a resolutely democratic approach. Feeley advocated for participants in the programme to ‘be unafraid of the lack of apparent absolutism in the visual arts, rather to preserve the sense that anyone can make a mark’.

'Work on Paper' Launches Tomorrow

Our new digital exhibition explores the work of five major figures associated with French art: Chu Teh-Chun, Hans Hartung, Pierre Soulages, Fabienne Verdier and Zao Wou-Ki. All engage with ideas of lyrical abstraction and Tachisme, movements that thrived in Paris in the mid-20th century.

Here we see a 1949 work by . The drawn and painted composition sets calligraphic marks against a neutral background. Hartung’s energetic strokes delineate and divide the space. Before being acquired by Waddington Custot, this piece had been in the same private collection, in France, for almost 50 years.

The online exhibition features a collection of figurative portraits in miniature; lockdown measures implemented in London this year created the space for Blake to return to these paintings in oil, which he began five years ago. Each painting features a portrait of an imaginary woman, close-cropped to the frame and confronting the viewer directly with an intense gaze.

NEW WORK: David Batchelor, is now open online, marking the third iteration of the Waddington Custot digital exhibition series and the gallery’s first solo presentation by the Dundee-born artist. Bringing together a collection of Batchelor’s most recent sculptural works, the exhibition emphasises the artist’s distinct approach to colour, one defined by and tied to experiences of the city.

The works on display are created from offcuts and found materials, which are then embedded into a concrete structure, relating to the manifestation of colour in the built environment. These pieces echo the jagged cement-and-broken-glass compositions that often adorn the top of brick walls in towns and cities.

New Exhibitor | We are excited to announce that Waddington Custot will be taking part in Masterpiece 2022.

Don’t miss the last few days to view their current exhibition ‘Landon Metz: Love Songs’, the first UK solo exhibition by the New York-based contemporary artist.

Working with thin washes of dye in a single colour, Metz creates subtle yet powerful paintings, distinct for individual, abstract motifs soaked into unprimed canvas. For his exhibition, Metz has developed a new series of works in response to the architecture of the Cork Street gallery, extending his trademark visual language with a new colour palette. His pieces interact with the space, which has been stripped back in order to create an open, uninterrupted visual dialogue.

On view at 11 Cork Street, London until January 26.

🇬🇧 A warm welcome to gallery Waddington Custot from London, who participates in the Salon du dessin for the first time.

One of their exquisite drawings exhibited at the Palais Brongniart, is the mixed-media ‘Le Peintre’ by Pablo Picasso (1881 – 1973). In 1970, Picasso made a series of drawings of an artist at work, including this beautiful double-sided piece. Reconnecting with the Spanish and Catalan cultures of his childhood, Picasso presents the artist variously as Diego Velazquez, Rembrandt, a cavalier and sometimes as himself. Picasso's preoccupation with cavaliers pays homage to his lionized Spanish Golden Age, the paintings by Rembrandt and plays by Baroque dramatist Pedro Calderón. On the front a colored drawing narrates the artist as a joyous cavalier whereas on the reverse, juxtaposing it, is a black ink drawing that alludes to an hour elderly and tired Picasso.

Join us in Paris as well as online via www.salondudessin.com from 1 – 4 July 2021.

🇫🇷 Un accueil chaleureux à la galerie Waddington Custot de Londres, qui participe au Salon du dessin pour la première fois.

L'un de leurs dessins exquis exposés au Palais Brongniart est le mixed-media "Le Peintre" de Pablo Picasso (1881 - 1973). En 1970, Picasso a réalisé une série de dessins représentant un artiste au travail, dont cette magnifique œuvre à double face. Renouant avec les cultures espagnole et catalane de son enfance, Picasso présente l'artiste sous les traits de Diego Velazquez, Rembrandt, un cavalier et parfois lui-même. L’intérêt de Picasso pour les cavaliers rend hommage à l'âge d'or espagnol qu'il a adoré, aux peintures de Rembrandt et aux pièces du dramaturge baroque Pedro Calderón. Au recto, un dessin coloré présente l'artiste en joyeux cavalier tandis qu'au verso, juxtaposé, se trouve un dessin à l'encre noire qui fait allusion à un Picasso âgé et fatigué.
