Gallery

537 West 24th Street
New York
Tues – Sat, 10 AM – 6 PM

Drawing inspiration from his childhood memories of Kashmir and the nature and architecture of the Indian subcontinent, Shaw has mined and re-envisioned his own personal history through the compulsively-detailed, meticulously-painted, and emotionally-potent works. Raqib Shaw: Landscapes of Kashmir will be on view at 537 West 24th Street from April 5 – May 18, 2019, with an opening reception on Thursday, April 4 from 6 – 8 PM. A full-color catalogue featuring a conversation between the artist and Pace Gallery Founder Arne Glimcher will accompany the exhibition.

Raqib Shaw

Raqib Shaw is known for opulent and intricately detailed paintings of fantastical worlds, often with surfaces inlaid with vibrantly colored jewels and painted in enamel. His works reveal an eclectic fusion of influences—from Persian carpets and Northern Renaissance painting to industrial materials and Japanese lacquerware—and are often developed in series from literary, art historical, and mystical sources.
