After Twombly... One Evening

In After Twombly… One Evening, Idris Khan references one of his greatest influences: Cy Twombly. From the late painter’s canvas to the words of a nearly illegible poem connected to Twombly, Khan’s work is a true homage to the recognizable calligraphy style of one of the most revered contemporary American painters of the 20th Century.

After Twombly… One Evening is a digital chalk drawing that plays with surface and texture as it subtly self-alters in continuous hazy clouds. The changing dust patterns prevent the viewer from reading the entirety of the poem, as if the words conceal the work's hidden meaning. While connecting the viewer with a celebratory painting that comes to life before their eyes, the work simultaneously evokes the sombre reality of Twombly’s death in 2011.
