Reblog of the day: Be sure to visit Rothko/Sugimoto: Dark Paintings and Seascapes at 6 Burlington Gardens before it closes this Saturday, November 7th.
Pace Gallery, London, United Kingdom
In honour of the exhibition Rothko/Sugimoto: Dark Paintings and Seascapes, Pace London hosted an exclusive conversation between Hiroshi Sugimoto and Christopher Rothko, the son of Mark Rothko, exploring affinities between the two artists. Rothko/Sugimoto: Dark Paintings and Seascapes is on view at Pace London, 6 Burlington Gardens until November 17th.
Pace London Director, Mollie Dent-Brocklehurst, has recently curated “Henry VIII and his Six Wives” at Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire. Catherine Parr, the last of Henry the VIII’s six wives, is buried there, and in honor of the five-hundredth anniversary of her birth, Hiroshi Sugimoto’s uncanny photographs of wax figures of the Tudor monarch and all his wives will be on view until October 31st, 2012.
We invite you to visit our newest gallery space and exhibit, Rothko/Sugimoto: Dark Paintings and Seascapes, at 6 Burlington Gardens. This inaugural exhibition pairs eight acrylic paintings by Mark Rothko and eight gelatin silver prints by Hiroshi Sugimoto, revealing two different artistic approaches that arrive at similar conclusions.

Hiroshi Sugimoto’s diorama photographs taken at the American Museum of Natural History first brought him acclaim more than thirty years ago. In this article by The New York Times, he returns to the museum and discusses issues of memory, time, and preservation.
His work is now on view at Pace London, pairing his bare seascapes with Mark Rothko’s late black-and-gray paintings.
Frieze Art Fair opens tomorrow, and at the centerpiece of Pace’s presentation is Hiroshi Sugimoto’s Henry VIII and His Wives (1999), a group of seven photographs of wax figures staged and lit like Renaissance portraits. We invite you to visit us at Booth G8 to view these works and new work by Tara Donovan, Adrian Ghenie, Keith Tyson, Yoshitomo Nara, and Adam Pendleton.

Reblog of the day: Rothko/Sugimoto: Dark Paintings and Seascapes opens TODAY at Pace London. The exhibition marks the first private gallery presentation of Rothko’s work in London in nearly fifty years.
Rothko/Sugimoto: Paintings and Seascapes, the inaugural exhibition at Pace London’s flagship gallery at 6 Burlington Gardens, debuts this Thursday, October 4, 2012!
The concept for the exhibition originated in 2010, when Hiroshi Sugimoto joined Pace and was introduced to Christopher Rothko, the son of Mark Rothko.
This exceptional film by Meredith Danluck goes inside the studio of Pace artist, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and highlights his philosophies on photography, nature and spirituality.
You can view his work in our inaugural exhibition Rothko/Sugimoto: Dark Paintings and Seascapes at 6 Burlington Gardens tomorrow, October 4th.
“For several decades I have created seascapes. Not depicting the world in photographs, I’d like to think, but rather projecting my internal seascapes onto the canvas of the world. Skies now forming bright rectangles, water now melting into dark fluid rectangles. I sometimes think I see a dark horizon cutting across Mark Rothko’s paintings. It’s then I unconsciously realize that paintings are more truthful than photographs and photographs are more illusory than paintings.” - Hiroshi Sugimoto

Hiroshi Sugimoto decorated a shrine in the village of Naoshima, Japan with an optical glass staircase that leads to a stone chamber. The work is now a permanent piece in the project titled, Art House Project, that aims to infuse contemporary art and architecture.
