Figurative Painting Gets Grotesque With 'Alsoudani, Bacon, Guston, Rego' At Marlborough Chelsea


If you thought Francis Bacon had a monopoly on grotesque and fragmented painted forms, think again. A new group exhibition at Marlborough Chelsea features four painters whose twisted visions are as imaginative as they are disturbing.

The British icon's work is joined by mysterious iconographer Philip Guston, Portugese surrealist Paula Rego and New York painter Ahmed Alsoudani, whose visceral aesthetic ties the other legends together. Simply titled "Alsoudani, Bacon, Guston, Rego," the anything-but-simple exhibition weaves four unique visions into an unlikely harmony. As Christian Viveros-Fauné writes in the exhibition essay: "Decidedly modern in every way, their works illuminate hidden corners of the mind as if seen by torchlight."
