  • Almine Rech now represents Amanda Wall


    Almine Rech is pleased to announce the global representation of artist Amanda Wall.


    In 2022, the gallery will feature works by Amanda Wall in upcoming fairs such as Paris +, Art Basel Miami Beach and Art021 Shanghai.

    Amanda Wall is an American self-taught painter who lives and works in Los Angeles, California. A heady mix of voyeurism, exhibitionism, and 21st century existentialism, Wall's work exposes the intimate and uncanny. With a shock of lurid colors in contrast to tender flesh tones, Wall's distinctive palette touches on the nerve of vulnerability, desire and control. The subject matter, however, remains shadowy - a tension between abstraction and distorted reality, a conflict between the self and the void.

  • Almine Rech now represents Zio Ziegler


    Almine Rech is pleased to announce the representation of California-born artist, Zio Ziegler, in New York, Europe and United Kingdom.


    On the occasion of The Art Show 2022, Almine Rech is pleased to present a solo booth of works by Zio Ziegler.

    Ziegler paints from a meditative state, drawing from his subconscious a personal interpretation of the world around him. For him, painting is an act of self-exploration and a radical expression of vulnerability. “Painting is my attempt at self-understanding - rather than finding a concept and executing it in a linear fashion, I react to my questions, life, and awareness,” he claims. The focus of Ziegler’s practice aims to illuminate the process of creating instead of isolating the final result. His images of monumental figures set in motion serve as a portal of sorts for the viewer, inviting them to perceive the work in their own way, and in turn creating an active exchange between the artist and the audience.

    Using primarily oil sticks, Ziegler works with textures that fuse the raw oil pigment with external materials such as sand, soil, and pumice. His sources of inspiration include Italian Futurism and Cubism, and call to mind the hybridization of figuration and abstraction exemplified by Francis Bacon, the early works of Kazimir Malevich, and Constantin Brancusi's sculptures.

  • Frieze London


    October 12 - 16, 2022
    Booth D13


    On the occasion of Frieze London 2022, Almine Rech will present works by Alexandre Lenoir, a French-Caribbean artist.

    After graduating with honours from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris (2016), Alexandre Lenoir moved to Casablanca to further develop his practice. His paintings consist of multiple layers of colour washes combined with an elaborate technique of stencilling.

    Representing landscapes of luxurious vegetation, interiors and buildings, Lenoir’s works often include characters as ephemeral as memories. Like flashbacks or dreamscapes, an ambiguous hedonism inhabits these visions, drawing on the multiple identities of the artist himself: one of his Caribbean roots, to Chartres where he grew up, to Morocco and his formative artistic years; and finally to the industrial neighbourhood of Paris where today his studio is located.

    Alexandre Lenoir was awarded the Fondation Jean-François Prat et Marie-Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre in 2016 and Pierre Cardin de l’Académie des Beaux-Arts de Paris prizes in 2020.

  • Frieze Masters


    Spotlight: Vivian Springford
    October 12 - 16, 2022
    Booth S1


    On the occasion of Frieze Masters Spotlight, Almine Rech will exhibit 8 works by the American abstract painter Vivian Springford (1913-2003). Springford first experimented with Abstract expressionism and then with a Color field vocabulary, the works presented focus on the latter.

    Springford’s colour palette draws inspiration from landscapes, plants, flowers, and sky. These subtle tones of nature can be seen in chromatic explosions which take the form of theoretical and cosmological shapes.

    These works exemplify her technical ingenuity, evocative choice of colour, and her practice exploring expressive forms through rhythmic movement. The works from the 1960s and 1970s demonstrate her evolving style, which increasingly departed from any theoretical or aesthetic reciprocity with the art of that time.

    Springford once remarked that, for her, the act of painting was an “attempt to identify with the universal whole…. I want to find my own small plot or pattern of energy that will express the inner me in terms of rhythmic movement and colour. The expansive centre of the universe, of the stars, and of nature is my constant challenge in abstract terms.” [1]

    (March, 1976).

  • Almine Rech now represents Umar Rashid


    Almine Rech is pleased to announce the representation in Europe and China of Chicago-born artist Umar Rashid, also known as Frohawk Two Feathers, following his first solo exhibition at Almine Rech Paris.


    Almine Rech will feature Umar Rashid's works in Paris+ 2022 and Art Basel Miami 2022.

    Having pursued a Bachelor of Arts in Cinema and Photography from the Southern Illinois University of Carbondale, he developed his own visual language with a focus on history and storytelling. The countless motifs and symbols present in his work transcend culture and make for a playful reading where viewers can interpret many different meanings.

    Rashid finds inspiration in everything that surrounds him – from old illuminated manuscripts, Native American ledger drawings, primitive art paintings, Mughal Persian miniature paintings, Indonesian Batik, Hmong story cloth, Egyptian hieroglyphs, Sumerian Babylonian cuneiform, Roman mosaics, Greek black-line pottery, and Japanese woodblock prints to African sculpture.

    Though mostly using mediums like ink and acrylic, Rashid doesn’t shy away from atypical materials such as tea and coffee, allowing him to make original connections between contemporary culture and colonialism.. As a self-taught artist, he has developed a freedom of expression that has evolved with his painting, avoiding the constrictions of academic artistic education.

    On the occasion of The Armory 2022, Almine Rech will present works by John M Armleder and Vaughn Spann in a specially curated two-artist dialogue. The selection of new works highlights both artists' radical approach to the materials and methods of painting. Spann will present a selection of new works from his ongoing series of biomorphic abstractions featuring two-tone compositions that showcase crackled, impastoed surfaces and appear to radiate heat from within. These pieces will be shown alongside several new canvases by Armleder from his well-established Pour painting series in which the artist cascades liquid pigment to create veils of brilliant color and form.

  • Almine Rech to extend its Paris gallery at 18 Avenue Matignon, doubling its size



    The gallery will keep its address at 18 Avenue Matignon in the 8th Arrondissement in Paris. The expansion is set to take place in early September.


    The extension of the gallery symbolizes Almine Rech’s ambition to keep growing in the French capital in a community that has been instrumental in shaping the gallery since its inception in 1997. The addition to the existing space will be located in the elegant Haussmann building and will provide greater visibility to the roster of international artists the gallery represents.

    Almine comments:
    “With the changes in Parisian traffic in recent years, we decided it was necessary to establish our presence on both sides of the Louvre in order to be closer to all of our collectors. Avenue Matignon has always been a neighborhood of art galleries, as it is close to the museums of the 16th Arrondissement, the auction houses, and the Grand and Petit Palais. Today, the 8th Arrondissement has become one of the major hubs in the international art market, so it only makes sense that we expand our presence there.”

    The inaugural show at Almine Rech Paris | Matignon will be a solo exhibition of Vietnamese artist Mai-Thu, titled Inventing Tradition – A Vietnamese Painter in France opening in early September, 2022. A solo show of Alexander Calder, organized in collaboration with the Calder Foundation, will follow in October 2022.

    Booth 6


    On the occasion of Art Monte Carlo 2022, Almine Rech is pleased to present a group exhibition alongside works by emerging and established artists. Through a multifaceted group of works, Almine Rech will bring together artists who demonstrate distinctive practices in painting and sculpture within a wide range of generations and origins: Jean-Baptiste Bernadet, Gordon Cheung, Johan Creten, Jorge Galindo, Mehdi Ghadyanloo, Allen Jones, Leelee Kimmel, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Alexandre Lenoir, Ryan Schneider, Thu Van Tran, Kim Tschang-Yeul, Tursic & Mille, Francesco Vezzoli and Tom Wesselmann.

    On the booth, the gallery will also present a highlight of works by Italian artist Gioele Amaro. A master of the art of synthesis, Amaro combines, transforms, and blurs the boundaries to construct a dialogue between traditional mediums (painting, photography, drawing) and new technologies. By bringing his own touch to this original technique, Amaro shifts figurative representation into the abstract and captures the essence of the subject from real life.
