Gagosian is pleased to present Spencer Sweeney's new painting "Serena" (2014–22), now online for forty-eight hours only.
Picturing tennis legend Serena Williams in flowing strokes against a warm yellow ground marked with pastel flourishes, the painting is consistent with the artist’s ongoing interest in representing powerful women. Stretching for the ball, the subject seems to merge with her environment in a singular expression of athletic energy, focus, and skill. In its fluid look and open-ended feel, "Serena" also echoes Sweeney’s commitment to an experimental investigation of the creative process: https://on.gagosian.com/3BhDD1y
