Almine Rech Aspen is pleased to present ENDLESS HORIZONS, an exhibition of new works by the artist Wes Lang. This is Lang's second solo exhibition with the gallery, on view from August 27 to September 12, 2021.
The eight canvases in ENDLESS HORIZONS were all carried out in the late spring and early summer of this year, as the blunt force of the pandemic had begun to wane, leaving us to decide what lessons we will carry with us out of the scorching trauma and into the rest of our lives. “I only had about two meltdowns while painting these,” Wes told me over the phone, laughing. “I was searching for what to talk about and one late night in the studio, I painted over everything for the last time and these things started really clicking.
