HG Contemporary, New York is hosting an exhibition of the works of artist Conor Mccreedy, on view through July 20, 2017.

 

Represented by Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim in North America, the show brings forth the highly acclaimed recent work by painter Conor Mccreedy (b.1987, Johannesburg, South Africa), who is known for his abstract and conceptual work based on his own unique, one-of-a-kind pigment “Mccreedy-Blue.” Inspired from his budding years in Southern Africa which is blessed with a landscape filled with endless shades of blue of brilliant cobalt skies and the convergence of Indian and Atlantic oceans, Mccreedy creates richly textured monochromatic abstract splash and figurative paintings in an unique pigment of blue.

 

Marked as the next luxury brand by Bloomberg Markets TV in late 2014, Mccreedy has had sold out solo exhibitions around the world from New York to Johannesburg, Hong Kong and Zurich, and has sold the record number of paintings for any single artist at the Kunst14 Zurich art fair. Art historians have described the “Mccreedyblue” color as having an "unspeakable effect", “The Blue Renaissance” per se, that discovers a distinctive emotive power and clarity its materials, capturing the spiritual connection between the artist and his creation, reflecting the blue ocean, mysteriously moved by the stars.

 

The exhibition is on view at HG Contemporary, 527 West 23rd Street, New York, NY 10011, USA.
