In Eveningside (2021-2022), Crewdson explores moments of contemplation within the confines of quotidien life, in places of employment, and in moments just outside of those work structures. The figures populating the pictures are sparse, and are often seen through storefront windows, in mirror reflections, or positioned underneath the mundane proscenium found in the midst of their everyday routines: railroad bridges, doorways, porches, the overhanging roofline of a bank teller drive-through, a dairy bar, a corner market, or a hardware store. Bringing his vantage point closer to the figures, using a heightened range of light and darkness, special effects such as fog, rain, smoke, and haze, and for the first time using his now ubiquitous full production and lighting team in a monochromatic palette, the result is a rich gothic atmosphere, evocative of film noir and classic cinema, but with the capabilities and clarity of the most current technology available in digital photography. Eveningside comprises 20 digital pigment prints, 87.6 x 116.8 cm. (34.5 x 46 in.)
The exhibition takes place simultaneous to the adjacently located Rijksmuseum’s Johannes Vermeer show, an artist who has been an important inspiration for Crewdson, especially when conceiving his 2013-2014 series Cathedral of the Pines. The current exhibition at the Rijksmuseum offers an exciting context for Crewdson’s work, focusing on aspects of a unique sense of stillness and the wonders of the mundane.
The exhibition presenting Gregory Crewdson's new series of works Eveningside will open in the gallery on March 11th and will be on view until May 6th at Weteringschans 79A 1017 RX, Amsterdam.
In our second gallery space, The Residence, a selection of Crewdson’s previous bodies of work will be shown along with some highlights from Beneath The Roses (2003-2008) as well as Cathedral Of The Pines (2013-2014).
The gallery is excited to be working with Gregory Crewdson. This exhibition will mark the start of our collaboration with this exceptional artist.
